    Zzp Intercooler, Noise after

    I installed my ZZP Intercooler a couple weeks ago and have an annoying rattle type noise since the install. I notice it only between certain RPM ranges and only in a couple gears. I took my bumper off today to see what it was. None of my charge pipes are hitting, and everything is secure. Nothing is loose. I put it all back together and the noise is still there. Does anyone have any opinions about what it could be. Thanks

    I checked all piping today when I pulled my bumper off and nothing is hitting. It almost sounds like the noise is coming from the passenger side floorboard. I couldn't find anything loose. It almost sounds like a weed wacker if that makes sense.

    That's your turbo, LOL....The only problem I had with my install was rigging the intercooler to mount properly and I had a charge pipe rub a little on some tube by the "up pipe"

    I was thinking it was the turbo. But it isn't constant.
