Ive seen people cut the tubing and re-weld it so it can be hung as a front mount.
Think they used a dsm sidemount though, but cutting and welding... is cutting and welding whatever brand it is.

I seen a guy do that on a 6th gen, so may not fit your side.
..Thats a Intercooler? Thought it was a oil cooler, **** its tiny. Is it even effective? I mean its so small, does it even work? Like would it may be more affective to use pipes>?

If you're not boosting much then:

A.) you don't need an intercooler and
B.) the pressure drop is going to do more harm than good as far as performance goes.

Either get a real intercooler and run more boost or don't bother with one and keep it low. No reason for an intercooler on like 6psi .

You can place it where the air conditioner radiator (or whatever they call it) used to go.

Or you can place it where you intake used to go in engine compartment. And run some kind of hose thru a hole so it feeds it air.

WTF? You think a well built, good quality front mount intercooler for only $155 isn't cheap? Are you kidding? That is nothing compared to ANY other brand name front mount out there. And if you dont want "bling bling" then just paint it flat black, its real easy. Theres really no point to that tiny *** sidemount and like someone else already said, theres no point in running an intercooler with low boost setups. FYI this post belongs in F/I.
