Intercooling a Fiat Coupe
Front mount or better cored standard fit?
+ Bigger surface area to allow improved cooling (allegedly).
+ Somewhere better than behind the headlight to put the air filter.
- Distance from the turbo to the inlet increases causing lag.
- Looks naff.
- Cost (no cheap eBay jobbies here)
Standard fitment with a better core.
+ Cheaper (not cheap)
+ No cosmetic alteration required (stealth).
+ No cutting stuff.
+ Standard distance from turbo to inlet so less lag.
- Behind the radiator so still an inter-heater rather than intercooler.
- Air filter location.
- More difficult to get to if a pipe gets blown off or other issue.
I'm considering these options...
Front mount kit by reputable company.
Standard fit with a decent core Integralle spec'.

Re: Intercooling a Fiat Coupe
I've asked both listed suppliers if they know the flow rate deterioration (boost loss due to core friction) of their intercoolers as that is more of a factor and I'll let you know what they say.
