    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.

    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.

    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.

    The filter is just hanging off the intake hat in that pic, body work is missing that holds it up
