Photos are not well lit bud..
Sounds to me like you need a tighter angle off the fmic outlet.
If you can send me pics of what you have I may have a solution in the garage as I didn't fit mine after the testing I undertook.
Just cover postage and its yours.
I suspect you need a small 45 degree coupler off the fmic out to a 45 mandrel pipe which will "twist" round to take a route past where the the old cooler sat in a straight line and then a small straight coupler to a 45 round to the engine intake.
Its a faff and mandrel and coupler position is key in this...but it does work like this ,I have done it 3 times now!
Let me know what you need.
Thanks for that Joey, I'll keep it in mind if this doesn't work out. This experience has taught me that I'm certainly no technician which is why I think I've smegged up somewhere, mainly because Joel designed this kit specially for the 147 facelift and has one fitted to his own car. I probably only need half an inch before everything is happy and where it needs to be. The next task will be to shave a little more off the airbox which will widen the angle of the 45 degree silicone and mandrel pipes behind the rad fan, which is the join that keeps blowing. Clearance on the left side is fine, altering anything there will cause the mandrel to foul the foglight. I think both mandrel pipes which leave the IC are fouling the bumper which is telling me that it's too far forward. Failing that I will have to move the IC back ever so slightly to create more space that way, failing that... one will not be amused.
