Default ets intercooler option

hey guys i dont know if anyone has tried this intercooler as an option. i used to do dsm's so i had this intercooler kit laying around. its their 1g dsm street core. i dont have ac so the core sits up against the radiator besides a rubber seal i put between the two. i was able to retain the plastics that box in the radiator to the mouth of the bumper and the splash guard as well. they are a good company and ive used their intercoolers on my dsm's. so its a decent option for under $350. just place the cooler upside down so the outlets are at the bottom

just ignore how dirty the car is and that hot side piping is currently hooked up to an intake and not a turbo for the moment. turbo is going in a few weeks

Damn that fits pretty well. Once you get the piping figured out post up some shots from the top and the side, like from the wheelwell. Are the inlet/outlet silicone hoses touching the sway bar, or are they just below it?

the cold side is already piped into the throttle body matt. i used the ets 90 deg tb elbow for the dsm tb. just faced it down. i took a pic to send you but it came out crappy so ill have to take another one in light. the cold side silicone just just touches the swaybar mount but it isnt in a spot where it will ever cut it or make any sort of difference in flow. the hot side doesnt touch. have about a half an inch
