Default started mounting the "nestercooler"

I should be done with the brackets/hanging portion tomorrow and move on to piping by Friday. Also clocked the turbo today, to about 5 o'clock. With any luck I can get the downpipe, wideband, and exhaust on next week. Sorry about shitty pics:

He used to be, i'm sure if you wanted the same intercooler he could probably get it.
Or you can find a similar one on ebay or cxracing.com

I ordered some more piping and silicone last night, and got a new drain flange so I can clock straight down and take out some more piping. Also I cut out those little "fangs" visible in the first pic, then last night I got my GV lip from the painter.

Koto i know this is way off topic but why is there tape on your headlights? Also maybe time to integrate a scooper as well with that mounting hardware it would be simple.

I agree this IC looks nice.

How about fitting this intercooler with air conditioning? I presume it won't fit because of interference with the AC dryer, but the end tanks look like they have pretty generous clearance in that area.

Also, how is it mounted up top? Does it have tabs like the bottom?
