People with EF/EL's and intercoolers, I'm after pics and hints/tips on installing a front mount. Kinda want to know what to expect before pulling off the front bar.

I've got a 600x300 (edit) bar an dplate cooler to go in.

Is there issues with the air con gear up front. I've already got a trans cooler too.

is that including end tanks?
350mm high is higher then what most people fit

air con bottle is relatively out of the way, shouldn't cause much problems.
transmission cooler can still fit, but won't be as effective as it'll end up behind the intercooler unless u make new holes etc.

the one in my pic is 600x300 core + end tanks so most likely the same size overall.

Yeah, you just have to get something to mount the cooler to the Car with.
I just used some strip of about 10mm thick metal, and drilled them to bolt onto the cooler, and then onto wherever is easiest on your car.
You may need to relocate the horns too, although thats easy.
Then you might need to cut some of the front bar out, to fit the cooler in depth wise.
