wasnt too hard. I did lots of measuring before I ordered anything to make the intercooler as big as posible and still fit. I'm gonna drive it for a bit and see what, if anything, scrapes the hood. If anything does I'll trim the hood support beams to fit better without a rub.

I too like the clean install. Was wondering, will your cold air intake setup suffer with the intercooler mounted under the hood and the heat it will generate while trying to lower the air temp from the cold air intake........? Kinda like a circular reference in an Excel spreadsheet.

My bad. I reread your post and see that you are contemplating fender vents. Would that be for fresh air outside the engine compartment for the intake? If so, then I really like the setup.

The vents are too release heat from under the hood. The added air pressure from the ram air hood scoop needs to go somewhere.

mine is a 4x4, so yeah, its friendly. I have a functional scoop from Summit that kinda looks like a flat pig snout. Kinda cool.

From ebay -
Intercooler = $100
Pipes = $100

Peninsular Intake - $70
2 1/2" to 3" coupler -$7 from Autozone
mounting brackets - $5 from Lowes, pieces of aluminum that I bent...and will probably be replaced by something prettier later.

Ram air scoop and 4 vents, $90 from Summit

so, its basically a $400 setup, thats off-roading friendly. I need that since I work on construction sites for a living and like to have fun while I'm there.

Nice.......... interested to see your hood lines, Do you have a way to check IAT's and did you record prior. Very clean.

yeah I use my laptop for temps. At 13 PSI towing during the summer I was getting between 250-260. I'll be towing that same load in 2 weeks, so I can check to see what it is now. It's colder out, but I'll see what happens.

Oh yeah, and it only took 5 hours from start (tapping upper mani) to finish/cleaned up.
