Wow. That actually doesn't look too bad.

Any close up pics of the core?

No kidding. I was looking at those yesterday before I found this thread. Didn't have enough ****s to buy one though. But, wow. If it works. That is really tempting.

it doesnt use the factory coolant overflow, but came with one. The core is 4X24 and i really cant tell the hight because the bumper is on but i kinda eyed it up with the tape and its at least 9 high.

No they did not and so everyone else knows this... which isnt a big deal.. since the kit is cheap.. You need to by a elbow adapter. Its a 90deg 2" to 2.5" adapter.

you also need a 2.75 to 2.5 reducer for the throttle body to the intercooler piping. This is still an excellent deal. The core looks good and the piping seemed to me a perfect fit.

so did the intercooler work or not? and if not what else did you need to get it to work? you said a short ram and a BOV? i might go with this intercooler if you let me know what it takes to get it to work.

you need a bov, it comes with some sort of intake thing but no filter, you also need the 2.75 to 2.5 reducer for the throttle body and the 2.5 to 2 elbow for the turbo. The kit seems identical to the turbo xs kit.

The 24 x 12 x 4 will require you to remove the A/C. Also the other kit comes with all correct connectors. I'm busy packing for a vacation to Myrtle Beach, no pics yet. I/C is still at my work. Good info on XSPower stuff. I love their headers and exhaust. ++12345.

Why would a bigger core make you remove the A/C????

Because it is HUGE. You have to move it back a little, or cut a big hole in the top of the car. The other ICs are only 9" tall, and 2 1/2 -3 1/2" thick. Mine is 4" thick and 12" tall. The other IC says it is 28" wide, but that includes the end tanks. It really has a core of only 20" and mine is 24". The overall width of mine is over 30". Biggest IC you have ever seen on the front of a Suby I believe for only $380! OMG
