    I've got a Toyosports intercooler, but not that one, it's considerably larger. This one: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/FMIC-FFRONT-MO...#ht_1189wt_911

    No complaints with the cooler, spot and has always done the job.

    If the centre of the core will be located to give a good through flow of air it looks fine.

    but then you have to consider the joints and overall build quality/materials.... i dont know enough to tell you the grade of materials used, but i do know it looked neat and well put together with regards to the bits of the cooler fitting together squarely

    Paul aka Tuffty has managed to fit the AH Fab FMIC as a stealth install, keeping his fogs.

    I would go down the tried and tested route if I were you.

    (That's 5 per referal Paul/AH Fab)

    To be fair, I just gave him the dimensions I wanted, shape and outlet size and he made it to that... not much designing involved... my reward is helping the ASN community
