Question in should I or shouldn't I?

I have an Evolve FMIC which was on the Clubby, but should I fit it to the 2013 JCW? I am worried about warranty, and there is various supports on the R58 that weren't there on the Clubby. so should I fi it?

I agree with Dave and Ali

That intercooler would make a difference to keep the temps down even on a standard engine. But i think it would bugger up your warranty.

It won't fit without modification to the bumper; I have one in my shed and thought about putting it on the GP but you need to get the dermel out affraid 

Don't do it Phil; you will only regret it No
