Default intercooler mounting ideas needed

So I was mocking up my intercooler today and was looking for some suggestions on mounting it. *It's going onto an EG hatch. *The entire intercooler had to be removed. *It's a pretty big Greddy unit. *It fits in just fine but the mounting tabs on the bottom are horizontal and are at the middle of the core support. *There is a vertical tab at the top but the only thing close to it is the hood latch. *Our idea was to cut slots in the core support and run bolts down through the bottom tabs.

So I was just looking for brain storming on ways to mount it. *Sorry I don't have any pics. *Completely forgot to take some at the garage.**

The bumper support needed to be removed not the intercooler

Weld a 1/2" nut to the intercooler, drill thru bumper support, and use loc-tite on the 1/2" bolt

But there is no more bumper support. Intercooler won't fit with it on

Make brackets that bolt to the bottom side of the rad support. Theres threaded nuts down there.


If that doesnt work, make a cross bar like the OEM bumper rebar and attach to that from the top.

put the oem bumper bar back, it has holes spaced almost perfectly you can use with some fender washers.

I have seen many people mount large intercooler onto the stock crash bar. Trim the bottom on the support and mount it from the top.

Just get some slotted flat bar and some tapcons if you don't care what it looks like.

My buddy makes these crash bars and they are awesome. They even have mounting points for your intercooler.
