Well, I just got back to my dorm room after a 300 mile drive from home, and was finally able to upload a couple pics I took over break.

All together, I replaced my stock clutch with an ACT HD, put in my I/C, and made myself a TSI. For some reason, I didn't take any pictures of the engine bay

If I remember right, 26x8x3 not including the end tanks. It's an AVO intercooler, made for their Subaru Impreza 2.5 turbo kits.

I was thinking the same thing- got a big chinese b/p for Xmas. But I'm still amazed at little temp rise I get with my tiny spearco. It's 3x6x17 core and at 12psi from boost onset to redline I'm getting no more than 6c rise at 22c/70f ambient. It seems to be a very efficient core.
