are we talkin the actual metal pipe that comes off the IC itself? im assuming because the rest are rubber and plastic....

if so your best bet would to be just get another stock IC for like 50 bucks...rather then deal with the hassle of replacing that piece.

If the dent isnt too bad and it didnt leak, I wouldnt worry too much about it. How did you mamage to dent it anyway?

my intercooler slightly bends in in the middle, makes it hard to fit into the car. I've had no problems with it. btw, the dude who owned the car before me got into an accident. I've had no problems with it, still does it joband all that.

A dent might slightly restrict airflow, but as long as it dosent leak, you should be OK. If you are worried, you could always get another IC.
