Wow, I would pick it up for the simple fact of the resale halue to another
Conquest owner.  I am not for sure, but I thought that the earlier TSIs did
not have Intercoolers so this could have been a add-on.

I think I would try to set it up behind the Radiator simular to the Spearco
design.  Spearco make a scoop and shroud for IC.  It might be easier to set
the IC up in front of the radiator but you might want to purchase a larger
Radiator to handle the extra heat hitting the Radiator.

Look at Summit for buying Mendrel bends, you can buy them super cheap bent
to almost any spec you want.
