If those are the Sportmaxxxxxes it's probably 0 offset, 15x8.

Looks great though, I'm not a fan of the exposed horns (hella horns?) but yeah, looks like some Subie influence there.

Also I'm starting to think mine is the only SRT4 still running the stock intercooler..

I was going to do a mini v-mount setup but even after relocating everything in preparation and trial fitting a couple of ICs I do not like the way the IC is going to fit. Therefore I think I will be going with an over-the-top like you have here but with a 16"x11"x3" IC instead. Even a 4" or 5" deep one would fit. There is a lot of room in there with the radiator and a/c tilted back.

Looks good man!

Well I mean relocated as in no longer in the stock position. I bent the dryer retainer bracket so that the dryer is farther to the left (looking from the front of the car) and that opened up some room. But it won't go far enough to get a 24" in there before hitting the frame structure on the left side from what I can tell?

Yeah, but I didn't want to see an offset IC.

The Hella horns are going to be relocated, as I don't really like the way they look there.

The car runs like ****, mostly because of my tuning abilities (or lack of), but luckily I am running open wastegate. I just need to get my MAF less tune refined. (see post in Emanage section)

OK I measured it out. It looks like if the dryer bracket is bent all the way over to the left there is 24" of space between the drier and the right side of the radiator inlet area. But it would mean offsetting the IC. Coastertrav, looking at the pictures, it looks like you removed and/or cut some stuff on the far left side to create room for your drier, right?

I don't recall 100% offhand what my intercooler is, but I measured today and with the drier moved all the way to the outer chassis like you're talking about, mine still won't fit. IIRC its 24x7x3 overall
