Best intercooler to use if you don't want to show ANYTHING for 300whp is an Air-to-water setup. No one would see that from the front. Those are not that expensive but the other components for it can make the cost add up.

You don't want to put the intercooler BEHIND the radiator. The other option is to use a Supra Side mount. Those could hold 300hp or so.

Which is about the same size as a supra side-mount.

You still need the water resevior for the air-to-water setup. That is more than likely not just BOLT in.

An Example. This is on a Civic
