    20140606_130335.jpg It's big. The core measures 22'x7.2'x3.75'. This is the absolute biggest intercooler that will fit in that space.
    I know what you are thinking. More turbo lag, right. Not at all. You'll think I'm lying but I swear it spools quicker.

    Good size, good company, good price. I guess that = good stuff. What piping did you use?

    Wow, nice find!

    Almost the same as the charge temp.

    ok, what's the ambient temp and how much above ambient are you getting on say a 3rd to 4th gear pull?
    are you driving the car hard or are you just cruising around?

    The harder I drive the lower the charge temp gets. I'm not trying to sell anyone on this set up. Mishimoto tested this intercooler on a 500+hp genesis coup. It is way more than this car will ever need. The whole install cost me about $350.00. It is way bigger than any bolt on and about half the money. I did have to cut some plastic.

    Ya I had to shut it off and I have a sport catted down pipe .. it can be turned off via a tuner or the ATR COBB software since i did not want to run a defouler.

    @Biff how much plastic did you have to cut off to make it fit?

    Just a bit. I didn't take pics as I was doing it cause it was 500 degrees out and I was sweating to death. The attached pic is the best I can do without jacking the car up.

    You have to buy a few extra parts to make it work. Got mine from Summit racing.

    Yeah I figured. Can you post what else you bought to attach it? Did you attach it to the stock tubing? I think someone asked earlier in the thread about it too.

    Also my thanks always goes out to everyone who does something first. You are the brave souls that make modding out cars much easier ;)

    I picked up a Mishimoto aluminum radiator for my Mustang and have been very impressed with it so far. I would not rule out going with one of their intercoolers for the ST.

    I have used Mishimoto radiators in several hard core, big bucks, race cars I have built and on several street/track cars, always worked flawlessly, never a problem. I wish I could of found one for the highly modded street vette I built, I ended up with a custom Ron Davis at $950!
