Default pic request of begi #3 FMIC with the bumper off

I have the intercooler to use with AC, and would like to see how it mounts against the rad so I can start thinking about oil cooler placement and shrouding/ducting.

Love,
The Hustler

Totally not what you asked for and not even the right year car.

****! I don't know how I'm going to keep this car cool. I was hoping I had more room to work with under there for the oil cooler and routing air to the rad.

doesnt the #3 stick below where the undertray is? I bet there's room for a horizontal oil cooler or one in the space in front of a front wheel (under the headlight).

I've been thinking about this lately. What if you had a couple of high cfm fans you could put on the oil cooler? Would 220cfm work?

I'm trying to avoid hacking the bumper to death.

I will take pics tonight.

The #3 is just about flush with where the undertray should be.

There's room on top of the intercooler to fit an oil cooler. I have a 22 row B&M cooler installed and it fits perfectly.
