A much better way to improve and inlarge the IC on our cars is to use an IC that takes compressed turbo air and routes it to an IC that has the enterance on the same side as the outflow. I believe this type of IC is called a down flow as opposed to a cross flow IC. I have seen only one manufacturer of this type, but I am sure more makers have come out with their own version. By keeping the enterance and exit on the same side, it greatly reduces the distance the boosted air must travel and allows for the boosted and much cooler air to be routed back to the throttle body as in the stock application. The shortest route from turbo to IC and to the intake manifold is the best for max performance and way less plumbing. What did you do with the boost sensor on the stock IC??? How did you modify the cold air intake system to run under the IC output hose???Or did you eliminate that all together?? Inpatiently waiting for the end results...and also slightly jelous that you have a play car to enjoy and that you have made the huge effort to improve your performance... JK

The EVOLUTION intercooler has this vertical flow and same side exits but its $1200USD....!!!

IMHO in prefer a more exposed Ic than one that suffers from fitting, the EVO for example sits behind half the bumper and half the front crash bar so both block the air. I tried the evo but after seeing the intallation and cutting required I kept my $$$. The Bug is really a PITA regarding FMIC, see our friend Vdubed here and his battery relocation to accomodate his IC..
