Reused intercooler.

I was thinking about grabing an old RX-7 top mount intercooler and mounting it on my throttle body then connecting my Vortech discharge tube to it or fabricate a new one. Then buy a hood scoop for the air charge intake. This way I will have the least amount of boost lag instead of a fully routed FMIC.

What do you think?

Get a fiberglass hood, cut it out then fabricate around it, would look hot if it is done right!
