big screws....... hahahahahaha

if it is a unit of similar design, it shoudl not be a big deal..... i guess the first thing i would look at are the connection couplers from the stock tubing to the new fmic. not a real expert with the 4's, but i can't see it being a big deal.

What type of intercooler is it?

If its made to fit the Neon SRT-4, like actually listed for a Neon SRT-4 then it should be just a direct fit with little to no modifications. The stock intercooler hoses will fit just fine atleast they should.

There's 4 studs on the frame with nuts that hold the intercooler.

Here's some tips/thoughts...

The hotside hose (passenger side)
-Some intercoolers need to be spaced out, you do this by putting washers on the studs the intercooler mounts on. Try to install the intercooler first without washers. Sometimes it fits just fine but the hotside hose is rubbing up against the A/C compressor and will eventually rub a hole. If its rubbing or this isn't clearance from the hotside hose, then washers need to be used on the studs where the intercooler mounts to space it forward.

You mount the intercooler first then install the hoses.

Complete front bumper removal is needed and since its a BFMIC the factory crash bar needs to be removed as well. I don't recall the size bolts on the crash bar but for the front bumper you will need (8mm or 5/16 socket) (10mm socket) (rachet extensions) (star bit - don't recall the size - for the screws on the fender guard (2 on each side at the ends of the bumper). You will need to remove the headlights first to get to the nuts that hold the bumper to the fenders (3 on each side). To remove the headlights its 8mm or 5/16 bolts (2 on each headlight) that need to be removed as well as the 3 top screws located in the center along the top of the bumper (above the front emblem and bumper nostrils). You pull the center ends of the front bumper forward while try to pull (maneuvor sp?) the headlights out. If the bottom splash guard is present below the front bumper those screws need to be removed as well (they are 8mm or 5/16). I think I covered most of the removal.

The intercooler on Nevin's car isn't the common aftermarket intercooler used on most SRT-4's. The most common aftermarket ones have similiar endtanks to the stock ones. Like so:

The hotside pipe is a BEE-YOTCH to put back on.....I'm jus' sayin'.

I would recommend new clamps too. Don't re-use the cheap worm clamps from the factory.
