Default Intercooler Pictures

Ok, I've been saying for a bit that I would post pics of the INTENSE IC installed and now finally here they are, in no particular order.

BTW, the IC radiator is the original BADSSEi IC radiator as we couldn't get our new coolers to fit in the very limited space between the AC condensor and the radiator. Thats why it looks beat up. I am going to get it recored and painted whenever I get time.

That rad looks like a tight fit, not really ideal facing down but it does cool.
Have you looked at adding a 'slush box' or 'cool can' for some sort of resivour?

It is adequate although I would have prefered a better solution. Unfortunately there is just no room unless I lose the AC which I wasn't ready to do.

You can't get it to fit even if you cut the crap out of the bottom of your bumper?
I wouldn't mind having an IC just popping out of the bottom of the bumper
Or will it just not fit at all? Just curious.
Too bad you don't have the space i do. This SE bumper has biiiiiig room.
Either way it'* still badas

So the Heat exchanger wouldn't fit.
Phew, sure am glad I waited to purchase the INTENSE unit. That would have screwed me.
Is INTENSE planning to sell a unit specific for our SSEi'*

I like the location you chose for the cooler. Looks like a good fit even though you had to cut out your air dam.

He is an H body, but he doesnt have all that room in the engine compartment that we do 95naSTA. The difference in space around the engines in my bonnies is pretty big. They dont even have room for the battery under the hood.
