Default fmic with p/s and a/c

so turns out the I/c I bought used along with my bov etc etc is faaaar to big to try n fit with the na bumper and actually have fit.
However I did get a ton of clamps and silicone coupler's so I was wondering.if people could.post up some pictures of their ic setups keeping both p/s and ac. I was thinking.of running the pipe straight down from the throttle body then around the radio and AC and then into the ic and then having the other side come straight up over the top in a setup like this because there is virtually no room to come up by the ps.

Let me.know and pics would be immensely helpful upon searching I haven't found crap and.I'm looking for something.very specific

[QUOTE=Braineack;931307]what size IC do you have?[/QUOT

i dont have the exact measurements but lets put it this way its big enough to cover the entire radiator. For 200whp its to big and the overheating issue is not something i wanna deal with.

Im looking to run something abround 18in or smaller this way i can run the ic setup i mentioned

yeah that's quite large.

IIRC my core is 18x6x2.5. You can fit the 18x12x3 core if you offset the IC next to the dryer. otherwise, you'll have to go under it or smaller/offset.

are you even trying?

here are the two posted above:

cxracing.com: Front Mount Intercooler 25"x12"x3", 3" Core: 18"x12"x3", 2.5" Inlet & Outlet

cxracing.com: Universal Front Mount Tube & Fin Intercooler 18"x12"x3", 3"Core, Mustang Ford Honda Civic Nissan



the one i'm currently running i got for like $40 on ebay. but I'm not entirely happy with it. It doesnt controll the delta as much as even teh 12x13x3 and it getting banged up pretty bad by rocks.

hmmm alright ya i was doing some research and they say the internal dynamics of the bar and plate are better but they supposedly dont pull as much air into the ic as the tube and fin design does.
