intercooler talon

anyone ever try to put a talon side mount behind a fog light and take out the fog?
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/95-99...382#ht_500wt_0 would it fit?

I think some people have done stuff like this with the cone filter for their cai, but never heard of doing it with an intercooler. I dont see why it wouldnt work. almost anything will work if you do enough fabbing.

It may fit and work but it wont even be close to a front mount in the efficiency dept.

I agree with John. Simply removing the foglight isn't going to get enough air direct to it. plus those things were inefficient in design.

Good thought tho!

I'm sure that if you wanted to go that route and maintain a stock look, something could be fabricated to channel air towards it.
