Ive just gone to fit my intercooler and ran into a problem. it was hitting on the bottom bar of my bumper so i have just it to fit. now the pipes are hitting on the air ducts of the bumper. Has anyone else had issues when fitting a front mount intercooler.

if anyone has detailed pictures that would be great

Thanks

also on another note. with the bumper fitted (pressing against the pipe work) the intercooler hangs about 15mm lower than the bumper.

Hybrid was brand name.
here is link to the hybrid install doc
http://photos.imageevent.com/kadepunk/hybridinstallationguides/GTIR%20INSTALL.pdf

I not seen a cooler same as one you got that specific kit for R
Any stamped numbers or marks on it ? what sizes & what pipe diameters of cooler ?
It looks quite tall for fitting under cutout bumper bar & assume it was hanging low before hence why bottom bent . I expect (guessing !) car it was on before could of had a splitter on bottom of standard bumper thus could cover it fully ...

You got pics & sizes of that core.
like I said, I not seen a core same as that on a GTiR kit so no idea how it fits.
I suspect it was mounted same as normal tucked up tight to cut bottom & front side bumper crash bar & hung lower than the standard bumper but standard bumper was modded with splitter so it worked.
It deffo been mounted low before hence why bottom bent up like it is.

I think I had a hybrid cooler on one of my old SSS's with a gtir bumper. The bottom of the bumper was bent down abit to accomodate the height of the cooler, couldn't really tell the difference though.

his ain't a hybrid cooler, he just used the hybrid instructions as rough layout guide.
His cooler looks about 30mm taller than likes of hybrid & the common chinese style kits

Looks exactly the same as mine ... looking at the hybrid instructions .... what i have done is put mine behind the crash bar slightly and welded some tabs on the crash bar so its another inch or so higher for clearance ....

No joes not same as the gtir autobahn
have a look at image below of GTiR autobahn and you see joes extends further below the pipe flanges & mounting fittings are on sides.
Don't think his is a GTiR specific cooler.

The Autobahn looks identical to my Hybrid one. I have a Pace to go on so I'll be able to reinstate my brake cooling ducts.

Could be as HKS cores are tube & fin plus don't think HKS done a specific kit for R so they close shaped cooler with custom piping normally ...
