Theres plenty of room to fit a big intercooler, once the stock ic is removed move the condenser in its place, cut some of the front crash bar, if you still need more room put a custom mesh grille forward more.

Im gonna run 2 separate smaller ICs for each turbo, you could have one above the other to the right of the radiator freeing up more air flow to your radiator, and join them after the ICs. The smaller ones have 3-4.5

This thread is 8 years old. There are plenty of ways proven to do this now from a front mount setup to a thicker factory replacement.

Even still, ive seen 2 guys without the gearhead IC, and the price people pay for that which is really a fancier stock IC. People with out platform just dont seem to have an interest in IC

Only 2 without? Look a little harder. There are tons of FMIC setups. There is also a big interest in IC.

That piping would need a very specific mounting location/application. Sitting in the engine bay, I would think those fins and the piping would heat soak. That would actually make the piping hotter. It would need to be in the flow of fresh cold air. I am not sure where that would fit in this vehicle.

You can pick the size thats the same as your charge pipes and you can replace it anywhere you have a section of straight pipe. The fins are maybe 1/2-1/2 so i wouldnt see any problems installing it anywhere.

As for heat soak, as long as it has access to air from the grille itd be fine. I was thinking about wrapping the thing with a sheet of aluminum and putting ducts on the ends to get the best cooling affect.
