    Shouldn't be hard to move inter cooler up a little higher if needed.

    Probably by punching a hole in your skewp and mounting the intercooler above the engine. Hell I would probably do that just because coolness factor.

    Possible to do that and to get a ram air scoop to grab a little air from the top of the grill and run it over as well. Just takes some fab skillz.

    The air flow over the hood is already atrocious. I'm not sure you would get much air flow even if it it was open. Look at the water droplets that sit still on top of the hood. One more possibility is that this vent would increase pressure under the hood and decrease radiator air flow.

    Top mount intercoolers (intercoolers positioned directly above the engine) are notorious for terrible heatsoak. I'd know, I had a speed3. Definitely recommend not going top mount if you want to keep your BATs down

    We will have our update on the turbo setup this month. Some of the parts we need to CNC before the kit becomes available, but our new CNC machine will be here before the end of the month so :).

    overall I'm really liking the setup.
    Install, overall is pretty easy, with the hardest part being installation of the driver side downpipe, as you have to tighten one bolt through the wheel well where you can't see too well if you leave the wheel on.

    We will have a lot of pics of our shop and setup some time next year probably around spring, because it's not 100% complete yet.

    Anyways lots of tickets to get to, just wanted to update you guys.

    I prefer the federal reserve. The $100 bill looks great and holds its suction.
