    Nice find. Seems like paint is bubbling around throttle body opening?

    I think that's just the rough casting of the Alu. I wonder if we could visually compare this to a standard version to see if this is thicker/wider

    I have one on my bench at present. Came from an MY94 GF8 auto. I'll get some similar pics to compare:thumb

    The GpA intercoolers are slightly modified with an extra pipe and some welding on the back. Ill try and get some photos of one this evening ;)

    Hi chaps,

    Here are some photos of a Group A top mount as originally used on L555REP.

    As you can see it has seen better days and needs refurbishing but you get the idea with the modifications with the extra pipes welded on and the larger pipe welded at the back.

    But the pipework on the GP-A cooler removes the "turbulance generator" as does the later STi one

    Is the group a pipe welded to the cooler?
    Other than the extra port is the cooler themselves the same ? As looks like an oem one just modded?
