Cool Front mount intercooler setup

Like the title says, just got this as part of a turbo kit and need to route the piping differently on my car, so instead of hacking up this BEAUTIFUL fmic kit I decided to pass it on to someone else and build my own.

Excellent condition, couple bent fins nothing out of the ordinary, piping is flawless. 10"x17.5"x3" bar and plate intercooler with 3" inlet and outlet. Polished aluminum intercooler piping. Starts at 2-1/8" and transitions to 2-1/4" before intercooler, then 2-1/2" between IC and throttle body. Very nicely made.

Looking for $300 (+ship)

Both though it came off a 94 na. p/s yes for sure, a/c don't think so, but not positive. Can test fit it onto a friends 97 with a/c if need be

mx592 made it. he's a damn good welder/fabricator, just check out his insanely awesome build thread. I'm just routing the piping differently on my car or I'd definitely use it.

Is it safe to assume that this won't work with the stock undertray?

Why not? Its the "traditional" routing just like begi/fm which will require some undertray trimming iirc.

Ah, I should have phrased my question better. Good to know.

If you would seperate the piping and IC I'd be interested in the piping.

I'll keep that in mind. If I get buyers for both I don't mind splitting.

Larger is perfect sizing for your choice of BOV





The other for the IACV



Almost forgot to say: the intake pipe is included too.
