I'd try to force as much air through that IC as possible. When I had my Suby with the top mount IC, the temps post IC dropped considerably when the area between the hood scoop and front (top actually) of the IC were sealed, forcing air through the IC and not around. Same concept as sealing the mouth to the radiator to avoid the air going into the mouth and around the radiator.

OK this should do it for the pictures for this thread. Here is the turbo to IC inlet plumbing with the new stainless steel mandrel bent pipe in place.

Anyone got a picture of the front of a 99-00 without the bumper on? I'm curious what is all in the way and how it looks.

Nice install! I want to see how big of an Intercooler I can install

Nester was installing a huge radiator in NBs, 1badmx5 has a pretty huge one as well. After seeing all the room in front of an NB it makes me want to go Splittime and do full vmount.

I'm still thinking about doing the half rad (Civic) with a cooler next to it once I do the coolant reroute from ETD.

Hmm... Then again a big cooler is nice also
