On my old turbo truck and my bosses turbo nova we bought that same size intercooler off of ebay for like $140. We havent had any problems with ours. I was running 12 psi and hes been running 10.Ashes to ashes and dust to dust, if it wasn't for fords our tools would rust

Have you considered going with a air/water intercooler? Vortech makes a kit. It's kinda spendy, but they allow greater flexibility in mounting locations, and supposedly cool the charge better. It doesn't have the same "bling factor" as an air/air intercooler, but if you're looking for a "stealthier" set-up... If cooling is a concern (engine coolant) this migh be a better route as front-mount air/air intercoolers reduce the flow of air to the radiator. On the Corvette forum guys who road-race thier cars were having issues with coolant temps climbing because of the reduced air-flow through the radiator. This might not be an issue for the Camaro though, or if you don't run it hard for extended preiods. The air/water intercooler is a little less complex in terms of ducting as well. Just kinda depends what your preference is. Air/air will probably be cheaper, but a little harder to install, also they look pretty cool sitting out front.
Meth is also a good option.

Air flow to the radiator is not an issue on F-Bodies since the radiator air is ducted from under the nose.

Hmmm.....something to think about!!

I think the spoiler helps to knock some air up in there.
Always thought a air scoop to the radiator might help. But, at low speeds fan switch helped me when I was stock in traffic.
With the procharger twins rarely do I get over 180... I think over stock I'm down 15 degrees or so. It seems to run at 170 most of the time. It's almost too cold imo. I'm thinking efficency suffers some ... you know perfect temp for best power / economy. Can't tell yet as I haven't seen any increase or decrease in mpg.... But, a serious power boost.
