I picked up mine from ebay for just under $300. Dimensions are 300 * 600 * 75 mm (core size). Fits very neatly on the ED and should be very similar for EF I think.

I've put a 600x300x75 (core size) intercooler in my EF, and it fits nice, I needed to cut a 2 inch strip off the iner side of my bumper, and move the auto oil cooler but that was about all.

That's the neatest bit of home_engineering I have seen for a long time it is a credit to you and with a small BLACK grille it will be a real sleeper ( keeps Nosy Gendarms and RTA away!!!) :roll: :twisted:
