The cooler is ZZP's new stage 2 heat exchanger. It's going into another car I'm building by no later than July.
The pic is just a teaser pic, teasing me more than anything.
I'm not sure what you mean by the top mount?

Intercooler setups for our cars have a core that sits underneath the SC with coolant running through it that is cooled by the FMHE (Front Mounted Heat Exchanger) that Codith showed in his post.

Call me out on this but there is no way that FM would fit where it was in those pics. Am I wrong? The hood wouldn't shut. I'm almost convinced of it.

got the fuel rails done finally
I'm going to organize the pictures and explain everything as best I can.
Rails are Aeromotive part# 14131. Regulator is Aeromotive part# 13109 I believe.
The rails themselves are AN-8 but basically we plumbed everything for AN-6 so the hose used is UltraFlex AN-6.

tortuga - Page 3 CIMG2597-1
tortuga - Page 3 CIMG2590-1
tortuga - Page 3 CIMG2594-1

tortuga - Page 3 CIMG2603-1
The rails came with 2 of these AN-6 banjo fittings - pretty cool - we used them on the crossover side. The hose ends for the crossover are a straight on the front rail and a 45 on the rear rail as you can see in the picture, to get better clearance from the blower.
tortuga - Page 3 CIMG2592-1
top view of the same thing. The rails seem close to the alternator but there's no clearance issues.
tortuga - Page 3 CIMG2593-1
shot of the hose routed under the nosedrive.

On the opposite side of the rails towards the back of the motor, we had to buy the port fittings to connect the hoses to because they are not supplied with the rails.
tortuga - Page 3 CIMG2598-1
The hose end for the rear rail has a 90 and connects to the supply line from the tank. In the pictures, this hose is the one stainless braided hose as opposed to the black kevlar which the other 3 hoses all are.
tortuga - Page 3 CIMG2596-1
The hose end for the front rail has a 45 and gets routed over the supercharger to connect all the way to the pressure regulator.

tortuga - Page 3 CIMG2602-1
The hose ends that hook up to the regulator are straight and the port fittings are straight and a 90 for the return hose. (angle port fittings are cheaper than angle hose ends)

tortuga - Page 3 CIMG2601-1
This is pretty cool. We cut off the ends of the hard supply & return line and fitted them with AN-6 tube adapters. Aside the fact that this was necessary due to my more custom than usual setup, this deletes all the factory plastic fuel hoses which is kinda nice. It's also all fully serviceable and essentially self-sealing. The adapter that's on the 3/8" supply line is a brand new product called SwageLok. It's a stainless compression-type fitting that's good for 1000psi. We used a regular adapter on the 5/16" return line because that will never see 50psi.

Overall, everything turned out great. The rails had some minor clearance issues at the back which required a touch of grinding on the blower. I don't know if this will be an issue on the gen V but either way, it's a f' up on Aeromotive's part. The rails are supposed to be good for all L67/L32. The other hiccup was that the MAP sensor bracket could not be mounted underneath the rails like it should be. The rails are in the way of the two ears. I used a couple 2" sleeves to raise the bracket up over the rails - no big deal. Once the intercooler is in, that won't be an issue anyway.

I also redid the vacuum lines to eliminate the need for the vacuum tree on the blower entirely so I won't have to do that later for the gen V. It's a lot neater now.

EDIT:

Adding a new pic taken with the top end apart so you can see the fuel rails and stuff unhindered

Check injector spacing, too - may be different on '95.

and keeping in mind that the injectors are in the heads for series 2, and in the LIM for series one.

what I'm working on for this car now
I don't have the blower here right now to do any work on it so I figured I'd work on this in my down time. This intake literally has my blood on it now. lol

one side basically done
the side I didn't do yet is how I got it - it already had lots of work done but not terribly pretty and the runners were still a bit rough IMO.
decent number of hours in this thing... On my end probably about 3 movies worth easily
