Thats one of the reasons I want this intercooler. the bumper I have, the inner hole matches perfectly with the intercooler core and will act as a funnel directing it in just like that "boxing in" we were referring to, and I wont have to cut the bumper. :)

What he suggests is either one, box it in with the opening of the bumper to the IC forcing the air to run through it.
