On your thread I wondered why you painted it black (I personally like the look of an intercooler in the front of my car). But then when I saw you mount it off set I figured it out.

22" core looks pretty swell in my bumper, but I don't know if it'd fit with AC.

People paint them black so they don't draw attention, makes your car less likely to be a victim of theft as well.
