Thanks for the link!
I'll have to look at the intercooler when I get a chance to see if it even has the tabs?

I know cvf doesn't have installation instructions yet (new product) but there's enough vids and info I don't think I'll need them.

Just took a couple pics. The cvf has bosses vs Mishimoto tabs. I haven't unwrapped the brackets yet but there is probably a little room for adjustment with this design.

Edit: sorry for the under exposed pics.

For what it's worth in the 1/2 batch we've had go out there have been exactly 0 installation concerns/complaints sent over to us.
Any idea what the ETA is?
I place an order for the intercooler with ZFG about a month ago, no rush , just checking.
Thanks

Still looking at mid-October or so! We're doing our best to get them out before then, believe me. Sorry for the wait.

Mine came in last Wednesday and I took a day off work and installed it Friday. Took about 4 hours not rushing myself. The Youtube video by Houston Speed Freaks really helped. I did notice my Ford dealer is in the habit apparently of losing my plastic under belly rivets during oil changes as I am missing about three of them. Everything went together great and I am happy with the service and the product.

I can’t decide which color to get when deciding on the IC
I have a black ST so I went with the silver.
I like the color offsets. I also like the Steeda blue sway bar and springs they pop when looking under the car. However some people like the sleeper look. Beauty in the eye of the beholder I guess.

Finally was able to install my CVFab Intercooler and it is an awesome work of art. Install wasn't bad at all. I replaced the rivets at the bottom with nut certs and stainless bolts and one of the replacement tie straps broke so I left them off. With the bolts holding the bottom on it is very secure and i felt no need to replace the tie straps.

Piping is coming (OEM BOV first) and it's compatible with any intercooler. Any of our intercoolers and pipe kits are interchangeable with OEM, which means that any intercooler will work with any other company's pipe kits and any pipe kits will work with other company's intercoolers (if that intercooler is OEM fitment, that is).
will there be a straight piped option for the 2022's that do not have a BOV?
