Everything as described. Bolted right into the factory tow hook locations. No clearance issues. If you have accessories like aftermarket tow hook or the GarageStar Type 1 License Plate bracket, you will need a longer bolt to run them or remove the acc. completely. Definitely recommend if you're on the fence.
High quality piece once I got it in and looked it over. Bolted right up to where OEM tow hooks went. Unfortunately, now I cannot use my Garagestar license plate relocator. SUPER easy install however.
The way this fits and bolts up couldn't be any better!
The core is also efficient and with minimal pressure drop.
You will need to change to an aftermarket tow hook.
Finally got to try this new intercooler out on my MSM with the LE kit on a warm track day, bought more than 6 months ago when a similar unit cost 2x as much from a rival company. Provided a noticeable cooling effect to boosted air temp especially when compared to the stock matchbox sized stock IC. Doesn't seem to affect air flow to the radiator too much either. Overall I am happy with this purchase and would recommend to any MSM or turbo Miata/MX5 owner.
