I don't know if this applies to the 8's, but for the IX's the largest intercoooler you can fit without removing the crash beam or modifying the front bumper is 3.5". The ETS 4" is a big intercooler and may require trimming of the back front bumper plastic. Any reason you went with a 4" core over a 3" or 3.5" ?

I see. Yeah, if you are hitting plastic you can try to carefully bend the intercooler back slightly at the mounts and trim the pieces of the bumper that won't show. There are a lot of folks on here with 4" intercoolers that made it fit. I would look up some pictures of installed versions first to see where the best places are to cut.
