Front Mount Intercooler on S14 S1


Recommended Posts

hey all,

 

need some help. I've got an unregistered S14 which I'm trying to get pass pits.

 

It had an aftermarket (possibly veilside copy) bumper which I replaced with Stock OEM bumper. The front mount now sits almost 2 inches below the bumper (looks typical 800x300x76mm core)

 

I could potentially modify the brackets but it's only got around 8mm movement up top before it touches the metal bumper support bracket. Intercooler piping on drivers side also runs under the horizontal fender lower bracket, so can't see how I can move this up any further without getting custom pipes done.

 

How do you guys fit your front mounts so it sits inside the front bumper?

 

Is the S14 bumper shorter than the S13 ...coz didn't have any issues with my previous silvia with the same size core.

 

Thanks all.

Dem feels. Mine is mounted as high as it physically can without fouling, and thats after trimming the bumper.

 

My answer is to ultimately get a lip.
