Old starion setup

mostly radiator hose and hacked tubing

No the block isnt holding up the car

some of the new piping BOV fit pretty nice

Intercooler finally installed

had to do more cutting on the ends of the bumper support



Only caught the paper on fire once

all mounted up

New piping

Looking good! The core is 24x10x3 and you can get thicker cores if you need to.

hmm, i rememeber installing one of those a while back, and the intercooler bolted to the bumper support. did they change their design? is the only thing holding that on the piece that bolts to the hood latch support?.

Yea the mount design has changed. It has 3 tabs that mount to the core support instead of the bumper support.

I couldn't get mine centered. It sits over towards the passenger side by a few inches. I couldn't care less, as it's still very functional and the intercooler can't be seen with the black misted paint.

Pic poster doesn't seem to be working tonight...

Jeez, you sound like my wife

Which holes are you talking about? I don't think anyone can screw up a install.

The piping can only get to the intercooler on each side by very specific routes

yeah now that i think of it the drivers side pipe pretty much dictates where the intercooler goes but i think the other holes were like an inch or to away, might be enough play in the pipes to do that

I already messed with them all and you're right, that driver's side pipe dictates where the intercooler sits left to right.

mine hangs a little low, there is about an inch of it below the bottom of the bumper opening and i could barely get the lower piece of the bumper to bolt back up to the core support

yeah im not too happy about that. the intercooler is great but i want it to be as hidden as possible, without contorting the fascia.

I wish the core were taller or the usdm bumper was lower. I just picked up a jdm bumper so we'll see how that works but that inch of gap got on my nerves between the ic and bumper.
I think the jdm bumper has less open area if I remember CP's correctly. I hope so.
