Identify the mystery tmic




So, when I picked up my FC, this intercooler was in with a box of parts. There are no markings on it. It looks like a bracket was cut/ground off on the side. He has an FD, Maybe he had this in the wrong parts box? Looks like it would need a bracket at the least. Long shot, but Id love to not go front mount just yet.
Its kind of beat up, not sure if it holds pressure, Id have to test it. But, if its truly an improvement over my current top mount, I might try to get it hooked up.

There's a good chance that was a wheel well mounted intercooler from another vehicle. I don't believe that its a top mount and it sure isn't an original intercooler from an FC.

Yeah, that was my fear. guess that idea is a no go. Now, to figure out a front mount system that lets me keep my ac.

Thanks for the reply.
