new intercooler is in and working pretty good so far... at 50mph its 68*F-70*F with an ambient of 60ish. freeway cruise drops to about 67 and holds. the 3" charge pipe isnt making it as laggy as i though it was... still getting full boost before 4k and intake temps only raised from 70*F to 83*F on a 2600rpm to 7400rpm 3rd gear pull.

im aiming for 325-350 whp @ 18psi.

needless to say i need a new front mount but im also not looking to spend alot of money(ebay specials welcome). what is everyones setup? i dont know much about intercoolers and i have limited space.
I made 350whp on my EVO3 16G setup on 20psi, my intercooler was 27x7x2.5. I got it off ebay for like 50 bucks.
