Today's update.....nada. But my kids are driving me nuts.

Oh.... not an e60. But got my e46 vert back from body shop yesterday. It was hit by an uninsured driver back in November. Took out the rear drivers quarter panel.

Had them paint my mtech2 bumper as well. So, I did a fitment today. Waiting for the brake ducts before I bolt it on.

I think I have everything I need sorted underneath the car done. Going to triple check it all.

Then the fun part of re attaching the subframe. Not fun on a car with dynamic crap.

Next time I'm getting a lift and just dropping the entire drivetrain. I'm getting to old for this squeezing under the car crap.

So, I have a vrsf intercooler and I need new inlet and outlet side hoses. I need new ones because the setup is different. I cut the ones that came in the kit to fit.

Now they are too short.

I contacted VRSF to see if I can buy replacements.

NOPE.

The hoses only come with the kit. 🤬

Buy these instead. Ran them on my 535i. Definitely help with flow

Edit nvm thats the E90 kit, contact them for the E60 ones.

Awesome sauce. Thank you!
Sorry, Hold upp that was the wrong link. That kit has the wrong hot side hose, shoot them a email for the correct kit for a 535i, it's not listed on their website for some reason. I thought it would be the same on closer inspection its wrong, my hoses came with my intercooler kit, hence i was slightly confused lol.

Hmmm..... I'll contact them and see what's available. VRSF sells separate hoses too..... but not for 535i. Can only get them with an intercooler.

Makes no sense at all to not offer hoses separately.

It is probably just low volume for him and not worth the hassle of stocking the parts separately. Not that it makes it right or good CS.
