Default Radiator Fitment for Water to Air intercooler

Whoever already installed their RIPP supercharger kit, did you guys ran into any fitment issues with the radiator used for Water to Air intercooler?

On mine the top L-shaped bracket seemed to be welded on wrong. Basically
it too tall and does not reach enough to secure to the radiator support

It looks like this:
. . . _
. . .|
. __|__
.|. . . .|
.|. . . .|
.|. . . .|
.|. . . .|
. ------

But should be more like this:

. . . ____
. __|__
.|. . . .|
.|. . . .|
.|. . . .|
.|. . . .|
. ------

Thanks

I'd take a picture of it and call RIPP. Maybe they can just swap that part with you.

Keep your options open...I'd go with something bigger anyway. Here's mine. Some flat stock on the ends and you have a custom mount. Bought it from Frozenboost.com 24"x12"x1" IIRC and it was $150.

L&M Customs isn't too far from you...Middletown, DE. I'm sure Mike could order the H/E, make your mounts and paint it and you could just pick it up.

Thank you BlackRamHemi and CHVYKLR.

I will see if RIPP would replace it first, as the bracket is obviously welded on wrong.

Hopefully I'll be seeing Mike some time in September to get the transmission done.
