Viggen bumper/intercooler question

I had the front bumper replaced in my Viggen several months ago. As soon as I saw the car, I thought something wasn't right. I could see the oil cooler lines and I thought the bottom of the intercooler used to fit flush with the plastic air deflector.
I finally got it back to the body shop and they say everything is correct.
I'm I right or is the body shop? Anybody have a pic of the IC taken through the bumper opening?

Depending on what IC you have (pretty sure you have the Forge or ETS), the default location for the IC should be just above the oil cooler. Mine wasn't correct when I got mine back from the body shop before, it was a custom IC setup but it was not how I had it when the car was handed over.

I dunno what brand IC it is. It was a hand me down from Ed Smith and Nick T. I don't think the touched the IC since it was just the bumper skin and padding were replaced.

Thanks for the pic. Can you see the oil cooler lines thru the opening?

Not sure if any of these help. Mine was a Forge.

Thanks so much for the help. I think something isn't mounted correctly.

Taking the front apart isn't that hard if you think it isn't right. I have it down to a science doing it probably 20 times now. If you want to get a good look, or need it fixed I wouldn't shy away. One thing I noticed is that it is easy to miss the bolts that hold the intercooler up. If one is missing, it will hang down like it's crooked. It should be level.

IIRC, Ed had a nice meaty Forge on there when I saw the car back in 2005 or 2006. It should fit without looking askew so they might not have aligned the hoses when they were reconnected.

A pic will definitely help....
