That looks the business for a DIY project. Can't count the times I've said to the woman, "if only I had a welder."

Why'd you cut the snub mount?

A welder is very nice to have yes. I don’t know what I would do without it. Once u get one it’s like a smart phone. U can’t live without it! I cut the snub mount back to put the intercooler further in and up. It looks like this

I was trying to get the factory US bumper to fit but nope :huh: the aluminum bumper frame does though. Barely. I’m going to weld the bumper shocks in a fixed position so it doesn’t hit the cooler in a minor fender bender. Anyone have a banged up S2/RS2 bumper for sale? My friendly neighborhood HOA might complain soon. Hahahaha

I drilled a hole in the side of the bumper shocks so I could weld them in a fixed position to keep the aluminum bumper frame from hitting the intercooler in the event of a fender bender. God forbid. But I’m glad that they didn’t blow up in my face when I drilled into them. Hahahaha.

Having to have up the bumper was the reason I went with a standard universal size intercooler and modified it to fit. I also removed a large protion of the aluminum bumper to make it fit.

Now that I’m looking at it. :huh: I should move it up. Here is a picture of the cooler with about 3/16” clearance on each side. Front and back.

Well its still in the same spot. I decided to leave it there due to air flow and the fact that I don't have an S2/RS2 front bumper. What I have been doing is hooking all the wiring up. Since I don't want to cut the harness and due to the intake manifold setup I need to extend the TPS and IAT. Everything went fine except there is no such thing as a TPS male pin female connector. Mark was able to make one out of plastic :hail: That was awesome!
