I see that Phuzzy's intercooler is 22x9x3 ..... could we fit a slightly bigger one in? Maybe 24x12x3?

I think mine might be the dimensions you listed, i'll have to check. There is room for one that is slightly bigger, not much bigger. Once you go bigger, the piping is more tricky getting around the A/C. The hot side is the only hard part of the entire FMIC install. The cold side is really easy. <p>Anyway, i'm curious why you want something bigger? With a stock turbo, the IC that Phuzzy sells is plenty. Did you already buy it or something?

I installed the PHMIC and there is precious little room left. There may be less than an inch here or there, but anything more is going to make the task way more difficult.

It's very snug. Take into account that if u buy a ic that does not have all parts included for ur R than it's gonna be quite expensive to have the pipes bent. Plus clamps and tubeing.

Re: (R broski)

You can fit bigger cores in, but you will have to modify the bumper cover more.

I have a 26x12x3 and it takes no more bumper modification than Phuz's smaller intercooler.<p>You do still have to cut away part of the lip on the bumper, but you have to do that with the Phuz intercooler as well.

Here's a few pics of it. Definitely looks better in the mouth of the bumper IMO<p><IMG SRC="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v724/tarmactrr/Volvo/DSC01931.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v724/tarmactrr/Volvo/DSC01937.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v724/tarmactrr/Volvo/DSC01942.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v724/tarmactrr/Volvo/DSC01961.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v724/tarmactrr/Volvo/DSC02100.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v724/tarmactrr/Volvo/DSC01906.jpg" BORDER="0">
