hi, i know that for a turbo setup, u would need a intercooler...

my qn is, there is a intercooler/radiator looking thing in my baby, is but the air flow doesn't go thru there.

so i would guess that i am unable to use that as my intercooler for the turbo setup,

may i check what that thing is for and would i still need to keep that there when i mount my intercooler infront of the radiator thingy...

sorry for such noobish question.

An intercooler isn't a must... but you need it if you want to run more than 5 or 6lbs. You could do a stock top mount IC from and all-trac.... but a front mount would def. be more efficient. Yea... the radiator isn't an intercooler... intercooler goes in front of that.

I suggest you don't turbo that car. If you don't know what the radiator is, or even if its the a/c condensor, you shouldn't have a turbo set up cause you're obviously NOT a car person, therefore you will spend a TON of money on labour. Just a heads up.
