Yeap it's a lnf hhr/cobalt intercooler, you need to remove 2.5' of both sides of the core support for the indefinite to clear, and then reinforce what you cut. I decided to start her and she fired up on the first try and took about a minute to relearn the idle and it idled well, need to finish up the cooling system before I drive it I removed the coolant jug and need an online radiator cap and new coolant jug for the fender well and then put the injectors in then install the egt

Here are a couple more pics


And then passenger side

I don't have acress to a dyno but ive seems a similar setup on a 2.4 his dyno numbers were 360 ft lbs trq and 260hp
On 15psi but it kept dropping off to 8 psi it's on ecotecforum in my build

Yeap elecblues ion is the one, not sure on the number difference but it should be fairly close I'm just anxious to see his numbers maintaining the 15 psi the whole time

Here are some pics from today, I got the cooling system buttoned up but not sure if I will Stay with this setup cause it's runnin about 200 idling and the cooling doesn't seem to want to come in cause the sensor from the expansion tank is unplugged but they do turn on when the car is turned off.
I Also put my 04 plus dash in and got  my exhaust all welded up all that is left is my vehicle registration in the mail.

The only thing I'm not crazy about is the 90* turn after the turbo. Other than that looks awesome.
