Anybody here ever tried to do a twin sidemount conversion on a Seat Leon 1M Top sport/FR?

I already got the S3/LCR intake and turbo->intercooler hard pipe,
and have ordered the intercooler with pipes and hoses.

Would mount the Wagner FMIC from S3 8L into my 1M if i had one.

Very good cooler for the money.

Have been looking at that a lot too, it's just 5x the price of a set of twin side mount Smiley
And almost everything is better than a single sidemount  Tongue

And I also have to think about TÜV approval, or I can't legally install it  Wink

Why not try an Seat Ibiza Cupra 6L FMIC, it is TÜV approved too  Wink Wink Wink

Have played with the idea, but have been told it wouldn't fit Smiley
It's TÜV for the Ibiza, not the Leon Wink

I have been scouring the net for somebody that had done this, but could only find thumbnails and people that said they did it, but never an explanation or proper pictures Smiley

Did you need to trim the bumper to make it fit?
And what about piping?

No bumper triming at all
I run it with fogs allso.
You allso need custom made piping.

I'm an old welder, so that was my plan too.
What I meant was if the needed bends and piping would be in something like this:

Already have the twin sidemount waiting for me to install them, so I don't want to spend any more on intercoolers this month Smiley

Noted for when I get bored of the twin sidemount  Tongue
