All the extra lag of an FMIC (and more) with the added drawback of shit getting in the way of mass air flow over the core like an SMIC! Sounds like a great idea.

Haha great info! I'm beggining to shop around for an intercooler. I get the sense you can't really win as far as the positioning but the standard mount seems like the more reliable route

Helix does a similar design for BMWs but in a way that actually works.

Like others have said being behind the crash bar isn't ideal. For the same weight and cost penalty there are more effective ways to make it.

If that was really the only option to fit a larger core you'd at least want a baffle at the top to help force what air is there through the core. It doesn't look like they even do that.

Phoenix Rising (spinoff of BSH that has since folded) went with designing their own aftermarket crash bar in order to fit as big of core as possible.

For $453, you can go with the same setup I have. Those CX Racing cores are GARBAGE.

CX Racing makes eBay crap. Bad fitment, low quality, the whole 9 yards. Would not put on my car/10

And yet they charge an arm and a leg for their "custom aluminum pipes". I messaged them on eBay for the piping kit and they wanted $300.

I'm sure they got it from China for $20.
