Would you be able to do me a flavor some day and check to see how low the bottom of the intercooler sits relative to the radiator?

Found this pic of mine. Looks like it is just slightly lower than the rad.

Thanks!

The begi#3 also hangs low bit I I'm considering changing out. Because the current undertray rests against the bottom of the intercooler instead of the radiator, I need to find a way to block or craft the tray a bit.


According to the dimensions listed on FAB9, and the number of rows shown in actual product photos (the generic images on FAB9's site are misleading showing the core to be larger than it really is). It looks as though there's 14 rows at a height of 9.25 inches.

Judging by the far-field view it looks as though the bottom of the intercooler hangs about 1.25inches lower than the radiator. I'll measure mine out on Thursday and come up with a plan. Keep A/C and Begi#3, or ditch A/C and change intercoolers.

Thanks for the image.
