Mostly all-stock engine!I have a worked-over Powerdyne blower making 6.7lbs of boost @ 5800rpm.I have 1-3/4" long tubes and all 3" exhaust.My tuner says I Really need an intercooler,not exactly sure what to get!!

mine is mounted just behind the bumper cover. I dont have the inner core anymore. If you want to keep yours try a set of procharger ic's. They are fairly small, although they do require more piping.

Thanks,I'll give that some consideration!!I wonder if a camaro has as much room as a firebird does!?!?How did U route the piping?
12-07-2009, 12:08 PM #7
the pipes go in on the pass side bottom and out driverside bottom

Hmmm,got any pics u could post? Sounds like a good way to route them tho!

Why not just get a meth kit?

IMO, Procharger's twins are not very effictive, had them originally. I have a front mount now 25 degrees cooler intake charge that the twins. Meth was another 20 degrees + detonationm suppression. I'll post up some pics of the IC later today when I get home from work.

Here's a pic of what my front mount set up looks like uner the nose ofthe car. I purchasd all the parts seperately & put it togter. EPP has a kit now that wil cost roughly the same as what I spent with far less fabrication work to do yourself. The twins are mounted flat under the car & therefore get a lot less air flow than a front mount.

Hey guys,thanks for all the good info!!Hey Mark98ss,what all did u have to remove to fit that big of an intercooler in there!??and thanks for the pics!!Looks awesome!!!

Thanks, the IC is hanging from what's left of the front impact bar, also removed the styrofoam on to of & in front of the impact bar. That IC is 24x12x4, pretty standard size actually.

Also cut out the grill area in the bumper cover asyou can see in my sig pic above & installed on of these along with the meth pump:
