$400 for a bolt on front mount is a good deal? Full retail must be a serious back door violation.

I dunno...doesn't really bother me. I'd be more interested in a working, offset intercooler than the inverse.

I have an MSM and I'm just going the eBay IC (27x7x2.5 with 2" in/out) route. DIY FTW!

my current ic and my upgrade are both offset by nature of the space up front and the width of the units. I don't care.
