Intercooler & Radiator Question
For thoose of you with FMIC's did you leave the stock intercooler in its stock location so that the radiator did not fall backwards into the engine bay? and if not how did you brace the radi so that it would not do that? 00' 95 aero.

I have the ETS intercooler i think for the 9-5, it is in it's stock location. We did need to get a little creative with stainless strap bands to keep it all together.

yeah from the looks of it ill have to go outside the box on this one. im thinking of having to weld the upper intercooler and radiator bracket to the cross support to hold it in place. im jst curious who has tried what in the past.

I can't remember exactly what I did. I think I just bought some flat stock, and bent brackets.
Then, the spring-clip that holds the radiator was replaced with a nut/bolt.

I know I took a bunch of pictures, but I'm not sure how detailed they are.

lemme check..

If you start there, and scroll right, it's the pictures I took when I did mine.
