    Hey welcome to the website. So I have 3 inch inlet and outlet on the intercooler. It JUST fits under the bracket with no modification. I wish I could of tucked the intercooler up more. Believe I have a tread stone 1035 intercooler if I remember right.

    as far as the intercooler brackets themselves I have two L brackets going straight back. The brackets are for bmw horns. Lol. Seems to be secure.

    Also for what it’s worth I have the small bumper brackets. Not sure if you are converting to that style. Forgot how big the factory 73 brackets are.

    original 73 brackets are huge lol , i have 2 small bumpers that i looked at placing on it but my intercooler location must be lower than yours i cant get original brackets in there . i pulled out all the heavy stuff in the 73 bumper and i have made some flat plate to go under the piping and some angle to bolt to the frame

    Looks like the inlet and outlet are higher on your intercooler than mine. I don’t have a lot of room between the lower valance and the intercooler and the brackets. But it works. Lol.

    On mine. The intercooler outlet and inlet are sandwiched between the bracket and the valance. Not sure how much you can drop your intercooler. I struggled like hell to find a intercooler that would fit these small front ends.
