    Front Mount Intercooler Mounting

    So I have been reading the how to guides on fitting a FMIC, but can't seem to find much on mounting a set up like mine. . My intercooler has 2 threaded holes top and bottom, not like the brackets in the how-to guide in the sticky.

    I'm guessing to mount the cooler like mine, I need a cross bar to go along the top of the slam panel which I can then screw the cooler into...

    Can anyone shed any light on this? Sorry if it's been answered before!

    This is the cooler, you can see the holes in the top

    Your best option is to have some s brackets made up, drill them then drill the crash bar and fit accordingly.
