Lookin good stripes, I'm glad to see you do this because your work looks 10x better than Jimb and almost as good as TDR for 1/x the price. You should offer two styles... greddy or HKS.

The TrackDog IC kit like miatamaniac has is interesting... the pipes flow over the radiator and drop down in front of it. There is a metal shelf in front of the radiator on all miatas. I popped my hood and looked at that location, and there is a hole in the metal where I'm assuming the left pipe goes through but its currently filled up by some sort of cylindrical thing with metal fittings - don't remember what it is. But there is no hole for the right pipe - for the Trackdog kit do you have to cut a hole out of the metal for the piping?

No, the TDR intercooler actually moves the entire radiator back toward the engine. There may also be a bit of metal trimming as well, as I recall, but the main amount of room is gained from moving the radiator. That cylindrical thing is your A/C system's dryer.

Thanks When my greddy kit is up and running, I do plan on a 1.8 HKS kit.
