Finally changed out the rotten factory intercooler for a 2nd gen unit. Opted to offset the cooler, which allowed me to use the driver side lower mount. Moved the pass side over a few inches, and used the 1st gen rubbers. Very minimal hacking compared to other mounting styles ive seen

Hard to give ya an accurate number since the factory cooler was leaking badly, but cruising egt down 50-100*

I was able to peg the 1600* autometer like nothing before, now havent seen the 1300* warning light come on but havent pushed it too hard.

Spoolup is much quicker and runs much cleaner

Changed the trans cooler setup, trimmed the lower valance and all fits like a glove.

That looks like a good setup. I think I would put a screen of some sort in front of it to protect it from rocks and stuff.

Just enough power to break everything behind the crankshaft.

Thanks!

Was thinking the same. Have a piece of expanded metal that will work nicely

Yeah! I couldn't think of the name of it right then, expanded steel is what I was thinking of. 8)
