Anyway, welcome to the forum! sorry to kinda Hijack. the euro bois and the Mk2 got me triggered:LOL:



I put together a FMIC kit for less than $200 and its large and keeps the car very cool. (also looks dope) I can send you the parts list if you're interested. Does require some handiness.

Or go with one of the lovely kits from the many vendors on the forum if you want a hassle free high quality experience.

Either way, I'd recommend getting a FMIC before spending money on a tune.. Tuners usually charge for revisions, and the stock IC is a big bottleneck for tuning. FMIC first is a more cost effective order of operations.
Oo for 200, sounds like a steal go ahead and send the parts list.

Welcome. I bought my 2016 st new. Drove it stock for about 15k miles and then went with Mountune's MP275 kit. Im at 70k now and went with a larger turbo and lsd among other things. You made a good choice, the st is awesome imo.Im still learning a ton everyday and this forum is great so hang around.

Hahah I'm sorry I'm getting distracted by self tuning. Spending all of my free time trying to make my car crackle.
I will get to it.

that is C H E A P, but honestly I might just save up a bit and get a depo racing.

or with the other one you posted since it looks easier and less time consuming to make and install. Since the bracket and intercooler matches better.

Sure! Do mind that the pictures of mine are shown on a pre facelift ST (2013-2014) and I believe you have the face lift era.

Something to note is that vendor intercoolers sometimes require you to drill through the bash bar anyway in which case you may kick yourself for not just building your own.
It looks like the depo one uses the stock radiator clips which will save you the drilling. there's also has some nice flow property features in the end tanks. maybe go that way.

Could be mistaken, but I think the only one the you need to drill to mount is Cobb.
