^ oh. More pics would be a bonus. I know I couldn't run a scoop that low on my car. The bottom of my OE lip spoiler is pretty much scraped everywhere.

I don't run the scoop on the street, I tryed and it almost scrapes the dots in the road. But I don't drive it hard enouph on the street to need all that cooling. I also plan on welding some tube off the back of the scoop for front brake cooling ducting. Ill take more picks as I keep modifying the setup. Thanks for all the good input.

would this size intercooler be able to fit standing straight up? I have AC will it still fit? Im looking to get the biggest size intercooler I can fit. But I need AC for now, I'll probably remove it later when my car is a dedicated track car, but for now it stays as its my daily

As long as you are willing to cut the front of your frame off. That's why I have the new tubular piece, I also wanted the stiffen up the front end.
