how is the fan in the way?
the intercooler goes in front of the rad and the fan is behind it

Many people put them just at the right hand side of the battery, thats what i done and it fits spot on. And theres many that are using that intercooler and have no problems mate.

cheers for the help mate, just one more thing. at the top of the intercooler does it screw into anything or does it just sit in position with the pipes holding it in.

mine is mounted with 2 brackets at the bottom and 2 at the top. not a good idea to let the pipes hold it alone mate.
