Hey Bro, just asking do you get any problems with the Police with your intercooler some mates told me cops love pulling us boys over. And have you ever been pulled over by these pricks. let me knoe the out come thanks mate. Later

*lol* cops are just doing their job mate why are they pricks?? hell ve lost my license too them twice ive still got respect for them...cops will pull you over for intercoolers for 1 of 2 reasons:
1. The believe its not your only air intake mod e.g you have a pod filter or cold air intake.. which makes your car unroadworthy in some states.

2. Or your intercooler is a danger e.g it hangs too low, it is exposed (not covered by a front bar), or it is deemed dangerous (sharp edges etc) this is because n the chance of an accident (especially if you hit a pedestrian) not only will they be injured from you hitting them but the sharp edges in the exposed cooler will tear them to shreds...

If a FMIC is fitted correctly the cops wont give you a problem...

Na bro never had a problem with the cooler. Got cannaries mainly for rims, being too wide, and steering wheel without padding in the middle. I got sent to epa and its all sweet as long as i didnt have a pod filter. I'v been pulled over alot of times but they never said anything about the cooler or the bar, mainly because its well secure and the pipes were done professionaly without cutting any original metal plates or panels, otherwise they all sweet with it. But u always get sum fukin pig thats gona fuk u up, sum are alrite but most are pricks.

I'd be more worried of the damage that can happen by not having it protected by a front bar. However mines half the size so I could be just jealous! Jokes
