I disagree. My personal opinion is that a large-core, well-made sandwich mount intercooler is better than a small front mount core. Also, a front mount requires air to have a longer, more turbulent "ride" through the pipes... Which isn't wanted.

I am located in south Florida, where it's already 95 degrees (today). I have zero issues with heat soak with my EuroJet IC.

Agreed, take 2 cores with the same cm^3 ones larger and thinner. And there other is more compact and thinker, the thinner should remove heat easier. However putting it between 2 objects kind of acts like insulation. Idk that's my thought process. Plus the main reasons I didn't go with a stock location ic 1) I already changed the stock out and that was hell. 2) I've always wanted a fmic 3) install with fmic was super easy 4) I got a killer deal from nodded euros for neuspeed 5) I didn't want/need a 600hp core intercooler. Again that is my thought process, others will differ I'm sure.

You talking about trim up top of the firewall? If so, it does help vent out hot engine bay air when driving around....and I have felt hot air vent out when I parked. Modshack tests showed 40degree engine bay drop in temps. Not sure how much, if any, changes in intake temps due to increase of flowing air in engine bay.

Yes that, thank you for the correction. I have been thinking of getting that...40 degrees is 40 degrees though so why not right?

Trim does help, in traffic though on a hot day you will feel it in the car. Also I had a sandwich IC before and moved to a true FMIC after 500whp

Pics are still up. Must be the firewall/security of your work computer.

Drilling into the crash bar is nearly IMPOSSIBLE if that's what you're referring to. It is hardened steel. Drilling and bolting into plastic radiator support works fine. There is a nut and washer on the other side of that bolt BTW. It is contoured like that due to the shape of the bumper. An L-bracket WON'T WORK.

You just have to make a bracket that attaches to the hard plastic (radiator/hood lock mechanism) support to mount the FMIC. There are two welded mounting tabs on the top of it (FMIC). Make sure they are facing forward so you can reach the holes. You will have to trim a bit of the front bumper (on the back side) underneath the whiskers around the foglights.

Here are the links:

ETS 2G Mitsubishi Eclipse 7" FMIC -- http://www.extremeturbosystems.com/E...tercooler.html

(2) 2.5" 45 degree silicone hoses -- http://www.ebay.com/itm/2-5-45-Degre...bf3d2e&vxp=mtr

(14) 2.5" clamps (2.88") -- http://www.ebay.com/itm/2-88-Clampco...item234d4ff353

(1) 2.75" ~ 2.5" reducer (discharge pipe/s-shape pipe) -- http://www.ebay.com/itm/2-5-to-2-75-...dba012&vxp=mtr

(1) 1 meter of 2.5" silicone hose -- http://www.ebay.com/itm/Black-2-5-2-...f153c1&vxp=mtr

(1) 2.75" ~ 2.5" silicone 45 degree hose (throttle body) ** OPTIONAL ** -- http://www.ebay.com/itm/Black-2-5-2-...c9c5ce&vxp=mtr

(1) s-shape 2.5" aluminum pipe -- http://store.max-redline.com/servlet...-Intake/Detail

(2) 45 degree 2.5" piping -- http://store.max-redline.com/servlet...-Degree/Detail

(1) 90 degree 2.5" piping -- http://store.max-redline.com/servlet...ee-Bend/Detail


As for mounting the FMIC, grab these items from your local Home Depot/Lowes:

- 1" wide aluminum stick
- (4 each) M12 or M14 nuts and bolts (at least 1" long) (@ the FMIC and plastic radiator support)

FMIC --- www.extremeturbosystems.com
silicone hoses and clamps -- www.ebay.com
aluminum pipes --- www.max-redline.com

all piping are 2.5" along with silicone hoses, unless noted.
These details are going to be a lifesaver for me! I've been looking at custom FMICs lately. Many thanks, man

Any time man. If you need more detailed info, PM me. I did thought about making a DIY but knew a lot of folks wouldn't want to tackle this type of project. Plus, I was short on time since I did this right before heading on my vacation.
