Default Intercooler Fitment and Radiator Fan Q's

Now that the swap is up and running I've got a few quick questions that I hope might be answered here.

My intercooler (stock JDM Ver 7) sits up pretty high in the engine bay and I had to trim the bolts on the hoodscoop so it wouldn't rub. It also sits flush against the hood when it's closed. I've been worried that something might be bent that's making it sit up so high. I've also got a ver 7 splitter to help, but I'm wondering just how much I'd have to trim to make it fit now. Any one know if having the intercooler sitting up that high is normal? And if not, has anyone come across a good fix for it?

And second question is I'm putting a STi radiator in (got it cheap, and you can't go wrong with stock parts) and wanted to know the type of slim line fans people used for their aftermarket radiators. If anyone has the model number, or just basic info on type/cfm rating that'd be helpful.

Thanks for the help!

my bracket that the TMIC bolts down to was bent up a little. i tweaked it flat again. worked better with more room. kinda sounds like your clearance issues. maybe not as bad, but similar. worked for me tho.

i had a similar issue with my i/c rubbing on the long studs for the scoop.. I just bent the brackets back down.. and its golden. I probably tweaked them when i put the engine in..
