    I have fitted my big intercooler, but wanted to know if anyone else who has done this has removed the lower intercooler link pipe(the one that joins the 2 standard ones together) as it looks like it might be structual owing to the braces on it. don't want to leave it there if its not needed.
    Thanks.
