Ic pipe install help!!!

Alright I know there are a ton of people out there that have put on aftermarket ic pipes. Can anyone inform me of any tricks or tips that may help smooth out this install. I have all the bolts off of the rad and intercooler support. The horn, hood latch everything else is off and out of the way. I have ground down most of the lip on the support but still nothing. I feel like I am going to bust one of the lines down there while I am attempting to make it fit so I stopped before I broke anything. Anybody have some tips ??

By the way the ic pipe I bought required no grinding?!?!?

What do you mean by not fitting? I had to buy longer ic boots so mine would fit just right.

Sorry should have specified. It seems that there is not enough room between the rad and support for the pipe to slide in so it would align with the boots. Did you snake yours in from the top or bottom? By the way I have those same billet vents and you can't beat the way they look

If I remember correctly you have to lift the radiator support out to get the pipe in once you unbolt it from the radiator. Yeah I love the look of the billet vents

I finally got it. I appreciate your help I was under the impression that it would have some wobble room once i undid all the bolts to jimmy it in there. Had to do just like you said thanks for replying man. I wish some of those ol gals I used to chase were this tight to work on!! Dang ain't no room for a big mans hand in there lol!!

All seemed well until I drove it around now there is a humming, maybe like a slight grinding sound coming from the engine bay. And the truck is not running right at all. I was barely accelerating ( goin bout 15-20) and rpms were through the roof. The truck is not as quick as it was before either? I did disconnect the battery cables in order to access the rad mount bolts now I'm thinking it may have screwed with the tune? Reloading the stock tune then back to 250 to see if it clears up. Anybody expire ce this or have any clue to what the noise might be??

Check and make sure the boots didn't blow off

That's what I first thought too. But they are holding strong.

I remember unplugging a sensor on the drivers side by the radiator support. Make sure that's plugged back in if you unplugged it
