For those of you who have been looking all over for some pics of front-mounted IC's on turbocoupes, this is the best stuff i've found in quite awhile: http://www.merkurtech.com/?dir=picturepages

There are, of course, several differences between the frontal dimensions between the xr4ti's and the TC's, but these pictures should certainly give you some ideas of how other guys have been doing it.

Here is the pic of the powerstroke intercooler that I installed. There isn't too much to see but you can get the basic idea of it.

I see you managed to get that beast of an intercooler to fit without moving the radiator at all.. How'd you pull that off? It looks like you just mounted it upside down and plumbed everythign underneath the radiaotr, but I could be wrong. Looks like a really clean setup though. Nice job.

I will have more pics later that show the entire cooler with the nose of the car off. The inlet and outlets are right in the middle on the sides of the cooler. I had to cut the frame of the car back 8"(both sides) to allow the piping to clear. The battery needs to go in the trunk because it is covering the oulet pipe and the inlet is right at the air filter. Everything was reinforced with thickwall tubing and a lot of bracing.
