Dallas, looks great! Can't wait to see the rest.

Not to get off the subject, but I like your tire / wheel combo, looks like pretty tall tires w/o sticking out too much. What wheel width and tire size do you have?

Heres a pic of the intercooler thru the grill. I like it!



Tested the intercooler, towed a 20' bertram on a tandem axle trailer with no problems, even did a 10 minute 8% grade which made me limit my speed to 110km/h because egts were at 1200... Pritty good for a generic TS 6 position chip on stock settings with stage 3s and stock turbo. And didnt have the water/meth working for the tow too!

A sharp eye will also noticed I swapped tires... Needed good tread to pull the boat out of the ramp.

Looks great... collecting the parts to do mine. Where did you get the premade IC mounts?
I made them.
The top 2 are made from 1/4 thick steel. that are 2" by 3" with two 3/8" holes for bolting the bracket to the body and bracket to intercooler.

bottom ones are 1 square tubing 6" long, there placed right on the frame, where you can bolt them or weld them on. And yes if there welded on you can still remove the intercooler.

Ill try and get some pics of them.
