Nice job. How does the bigger intercooler affect your performance? :icon_confused:

Good job!
I'm thinking of doing a hidden winch as well.
Any chance you could post higher resolution pictures so I could see how you mounted it?
Thanks.

Can someone please tell me what this is "intercooling" or is that term just being used for describing the transmission cooler? I'm only familiar with the term intercooler being used on boosted performance set ups with supercharging.

Looks nice. Only question I have, is did you chop the frame cross member to mount the winch behind the bumper? Anyone have any thoughts on how strong (or weak) the mount will be after a mod like that? It appears that the stock tow hook mounting locations are gone, so if he actually has to use the winch, how strongly is it supported??

actually , I tested all the differences during this weekend .

bigger upgraded intercooler and modified pipes gave my ride
about 10 hp up and...it ran much lighter and smother than before .

I am totally happy about it .:)

I did chop the cross member , right ..
Warn winch plate is mounted and welded ..

some testing for pulling other vehicles out , I am very positive with this hidden winch .

there wasn't any problem at all ^^
