    Hey guys, I'm about to install a 3.5" thick ETS intercooler in my 1G that already has a FMIC in it.

    Radiator Support Holes
    Current piping is stock style so I have the passenger side radiator support open. The driver side looks pretty tough with the curve panel. This pretty straight forward?

    JMF Header and Wastegate Dump Tube
    There's not much room here with the fans and dump tube, what are you guys doing in this area, any pics?

    Anyone ever run the pipes in reverse, in through passenger and out driver side?
    I ask because my current set-up runs the piping in the passenger side already so the turbo outlet is setup that way.

    A lot of people have to either get slim fans for driver side or remove and replace with pusher fan on other side of radiator.

    I have the 8" slim fan, I guess the wastegate dump tube will need attention too but it's possible since so many have the ETS.

    Here ya go, pretty tight even with the slims but others are doing it so I'm sure it can be stuffed in there.
