I was also refering to "no missing" even when the IC is attached. I have
removed my knock sensor and will begin to get detonation around 18 psi in
premium mode. In unleaded mode (retarded timing), I can get up to 21 psi
without any missing or noticible detonation. Sunoco Ultra fuel.

I was referring to when I get the TC IC to stay on the car and that
is when I get the miss. I did have the same problem you are talking
about before I double clamped the IC.

I agree that the seal is not very good but I feel that the larger
capacity Intercooler is better no matter what the seal (to a certain
point) I still notice faster spool and more power with the TC IC and
I will stick with it for a while.
