Well john has alot of interesting stuff on his site whenever it gets up. He has even got a car he put twin stock intercoolers on, because he didn't want to spend money on a true upgraded intercooler.

The base of the radiator mount has the holes already there, as does the bumper cover to the sides. I just did a GTE swap, last summer, so I still pretty much remember.

I had some trouble with the lower moutns, and had to extend my lower IC pipe a bit. No matter, because I'm swapping in a Driftmotion Spearco replica this spring. :)

Yes, all the mounts are there, same place as the donor car. Just go look at a stock turbo, if you can, and it's in the same place.

What I did was jack the front of the car up and crawled underneath the front bumper. Take the intercooler and slide it in front of the radiator and start moving it around. You will see where it bolts into. It will sit in there at an angle. OR, you can take the bumper off and figure it out that way. Really, once you see where it goes you will feel stupid, or at least I did ;)

In this thread is a picture of an 89 Turbo that I got the motor from. It's a front facing photo and the intercooler and oil cooler are still attached. I hope it helps.
