i don't think a intercooler is much of a concern. just remember the bigger the intercooler the more lag .... the most important to me in the turbo and tune < so just worry about that [neener]

Also, you don't need it 8 inches tall.
It's a lot easier to fit a 6 inch under the bumper without the intercooler hanging down too low.
Your IAT temps will be quite low with this size intercooler.
A good example is this with a 2.5 inch core:

Remember, the Procharger kit comes with a small undermount intercooler, its nowhere near as effective as this unit sitting at the front of your car.
Oh, trim the outer bungs off the top and leave the center one in place.
Make an "L" out of some metal (whatever you can find thats reasonably strong) and attach the center bung to your bumper.
Then use some brackets to attach the 3 bungs underneath to the bottom of the radiator support.
It'll be rock solid.
