Looks like a perfect day to install an intercooler in a garage without A/C!

Get longer bolts for the core support to put it in service position. That way you can have to core support hang there and support itself while you work instead of wrestling with trying to hold up the core support on top of removing the ic. Don't make it harder for yourself

Hard to say, vw made two different sizes. Once you have the bumper cover off just take one of them out, go to ace hardware and match the threads with a bolt about 4 inches longer. You need one for each side

That would require me driving my wife's Nissan Rogue, which I try to avoid doing at all costs. I swear that's the worst modern vehicle on the road. There's a reason they're cheap as shit.

I guess I'll have to scour the internet for that information instead of having it spoon fed to me like a toddler. I'm sure it's out there somewhere.

I always did intercooler swaps the old fashioned way without the magical service position jay speaks of. I could do it myself. Takes 4 hours at the slow 'wheres my 10m (or in this case t27)' pace that i go.

People like to do things the hard way, like sitting down to wipe 🤷
