Sorry I keep talking about this but, I have the opportunity to get what I would consider to be an incredible deal on a used full size intercooler setup. So, if I were to notch out the inner sheet metal on the hood, the core should fit without cradle spacers or anything? Also, would anyone be interested in my ssic setup and a gen v?

GUYS HELP. It's the 2.25" core.

It's the full ic setup, a gen v, and the lim, and he wants $600. That seems almost so cheap that I should expect something to be broken. What do you guys think?

If you can afford it, jump on it. Ask the guy if you can return everything if there's something you don't like.

I'd probably jump on that. Just tell em you're prepared to buy as long as nothing wrong with it or whatever.
I haven't verified myself but you should be able to fit it with only cutting the good inner sheetmetal in a couple spots at worst. The front mount will be the interesting part

Just get it over with - cut a hole in the hood and let the blower stick through. Air cooling!

I told the dude PayPal is all ready to go. Just waiting on him to figure out how much shipping will be. If it weren't a DD, I probably would just cut a hole in the hood. That would make it a racecar.

Finally got my front mount installed over the weekend. Yes, I know I've had the phenolic core installed for years now...

Question for those that have done a fmhe, where did you wire up the pump? Want it on with key on and driver fender seems like best placement.

Holy crap I thought you already had yours all going this whole time!
For the pump I put mine in the passenger fender area (there's pics somewhere) with a relay right by it and wired the turn-on signal into the cabin where I have a switch to accessory power behind the radio. I Tapped into that for all sorts of added things. I like having the switch to be able to turn off the pump during PCM flashing and stuff like that. Don't forget a fuse - don't want a shorted pump to burn down yo whip

Thanks for the reply.

Was hoping to run it to an existing wire so it would run so long as the key was on. Im afraid if i put it on a switch ill forget to turn it off and kill the battery lol .

Quick video showing post intercooler install. Really opens up top end where i was seeing a few degrees of KR.

I ended up using a 12V relay and running the signal wire off the EGR harness since i dont have an EGR and it was hot with key on.
