Well i test fit mine under the drivers side vent and i dont see how it will work without using a large 'persuader' to knock out some clearance. ive seen the trunk mounted setup here but i would like to see other setups, maybe im missing something here...

I put mine behind the driver's side quater panel. It even has a Spal fan hooked up to it which dramaically improves cooling. If you use the blackstone saab intercooler it is very doable. However, you will need to cut away the sheetmetal under the evap canistor, make your own intercooler bracket, modify the fuel tube, and modify the quater panel for clearance. I did all this with a simple dremel tool and a torch kit I bought from Menards. I will send you a word document that I am working on that has the pics. It is not complete but it has most of my images.

I put mine down under the car between the cradle and body. sits right in front of the starter location. I use an electric puller fan as well as an air deflector off a RWD GM car to ensure airflow at all vehicle speeds. biggest hurdle was running pipes down to and back up from the IC but other than that pleanty of room. Then again I don't have any exhaust running up there either.

power corrupts. absolute power corrupts absolutely.
