your statement makes no sense.. can you rephrase that... cuz i dont understand what you are trying to say.. why do you need an inter cooler that big? are you trying to say that a taller inter cooler is easier to cool? im lost on your statement..

I say.. is better/easier to cool a 31" long than a 27"~28" because the shape of the front bumper...

The problem is that when you choose a long intercooler, the only option that i got is a taller too.

Isnīt too hot, but i want one that be cooled in the max area as possible, now i need to put air in the top end of the intercooler, maybe cutting the bumper or something that guides the air inwards....you have an advise?
