I am at the point of triming my front bumper to make room for my intercooler. Trying not to jack this up, any idea's or pics? Keep in mind I have a/c which takes more room for condenser.

Don't have ac and my is a 86GT, i trimmed my steel bumper support to lighten the nose but found it useful when i installed my intercooler. I tilted my intercooler so i didn't have to trim the bumper cover.

One sweet looking 4 eye there. After looking at mine this wouldn't work. At this point I am thinking I will need to completely relocate my condenser forward torwards the engine to get the room I need. Don't get me wrong I could cut my bumper with everything in the stock position, this would look like poo. With the condeneser in the stock location my bumper will require complete butchering to make intercooler fit. Going for the stealth or clean look.

Treadstone intercooler fit perfect in the hole in front of the a/c condenser
no trimming inside. Little bit of trimming to bumper for outlet tube, but its also a 3.5" big tube.
GT would not need trimmed. Also cut some holes for better airflow.

Thanks for the replys.
I didn't want to trim the three supports. Did I mention I want to keep as stock as possible. My intercooler does not touch in the middle of my bumper, just where the pipes connect on the outside. I was hoping someone had pics of how they trimmed the outer edge. I'm being picky.

My intercooler is 23.5 X 11.5 X 3

I was going to keep the air on my car until I saw that I was going to have to cut all the supports. So I just went ahead and took the condensor off and said the hell with it.

I didnt have to cut anything behing bumper, had to trim the front bumper only a little
using the Treadstone intercooler with A/C condenser still in place.

Tight fit, but looks good and works fine.

Quicktime kit does require trimming of the bumper cover.

Here's a few:





Its pretty much invisible from the outside and quite a few people ask me why I don't run an intercooler :) :


There are 7 nice holes cut from the underside of the front bumper. I don't have a great pic of it in photobucket, but if you squint in this pic you can see it:
