Hahn and Dejon made upgraded side mounts, but they are hard to come by. I've read threads that as Supra side mount can work with a little modification.

There is an ongoing group buy from Raven Fab, link below.

A different approach to a similar end can be adding a simple water mister to spray onto your stock intercooler. Chrysler offered something like this on the SRT4 as one of their “turbo toys”. You could easily fashion one from parts used for windshield washers. Getting good spray over the entire heat exchange surface is key. Using distilled water will keep minerals from forming on the aluminum. The amount of heat extraction that can be had from evaporating water (known as latent heat) is very high compared with just more area for passing ambient air. Not sure why more folks don’t try this. A lot less effort than all the piping changes needed to fit a new IC. I suggest an electric temp sensor in the IC outlet air and a manual switch to spray the water as a starting point. You could get more sophisticated with automated spray to suite your use if you prefer.

I had a super sidemount from a supra I was gonna use and never got around to it.
It was a Trust sidemount for the supra that thing was thick as hell let me see if I can post pics.
Still has to be modified and re welded but when I mocked it up against factory it fit really well.
