This is a bit old, but since it's about a used Hahn Intercooler, which we now also possess, I'm interested in installation.....

yes, I have read the link, and will continue to peruse that before any install in spring, my question is I'm CERTAIN I remember someone stating that when they swapped out an IC they did NOT remove the front fascia. Everything done from underneath or above, the couple bolts needed to be removed can be done through the honeycomb front (or again underneath).

So I've been searching for any further writeups that were done about IC install but using the no-front-fascia-removal method, no luck????

THAT is my issue. I put in hours over a couple days playing with all the front alignment once I found that body pdf online here. So I've got all the lines just right and if I can do this without mucking that up again and having to redo, that's what I want to do.

I installed the Dejon IC without pulling the front bumper cover. It can be done. It took me a day, but I was taking my time and it was my first IC swap. The only challenging part was trimming the
Attic duct to fit the larger size.

I guess no writeup though? I suppose what I could do is follow the writeup with the link except skip right to the part about disconnecting the upper hoses and getting that bottom panel off and seeing what things look like from there. I can always take the front off at that point, not in any hurry, I'll take a day off this spring to do this.

This Hahn IC is massive. It's an extra .5" thicker than the other aftermarket IC's (4" thick), and the finned portion is wider by about 2-3" as well (though it's the same overall width).

I noticed on the Dejon site they comment about that hose on the bottom of the stock one, they guess it's maybe for condensation, but had never seen that before. Did anyone ever confirm what the heck that is for?

The intercoolers can definitely be swapped out without taking off the nose pretty quickly if you have done it before. Rick out in the shop can do it pretty easily, I still like taking the nose off personally since that is the way I learned it and can have noses off pretty quickly.

As for the hose at the bottom of the stock intercooler it is a reservoir (even called that in the parts manual) for condensation. After the air gets cooled by the the intercooler water will collect and those hoses give it a place to go. On the Sonic we do development for, there is evidence of the water when you pull the intercooler tubes off, where the water has mixed with oil and created a little bit of sludge just after the intercooler. The cobalt ss and sonic both do not have that reservoir.

Thanks Dave, I guess nothing to worry about with those hoses since most IC's don't seem to have them.
