Aftermarket top mount intercooler

Fitment to the engine will be fine as the same style turbo and intake manifold are used but the shroud shape and dimensions will be all wrong for the Legacy hood scoop.

Oh thats good news. Yeah I thought the scoop would be directed wrong. Wouldn't it still flow air normally as before since the intercooler is still in the same location. Maybe if I cut the plastic off the inside of the scoop will help?

It’ll still work but without shrouds covering the core properly you'll have a heap of air going around it rather than through, or if you extend the factory shroud you’ll give up some of the new cores surface area. I'm sure you could with some trial and error merge that shroud to the factory one to get the best flow across the whole core

You don't need the air to hit the whole surface for it to work... there will be the same amount of air coming through the scoop.

As long as the air is forced to go through the IC and can't go around it... you are good.

      Afternoon team,
      im new to the group first time posting. Im hoping some body can help me get my launch control all dialled in on my link g4x. Ive had the computer and car all tuned from chris at prestige awesome knowlegable guy super happy with the results but now im wanting to get my launch/anti lag all dialled in. Ive been reading multiple different forums etc all with different conflicking information which has made me nervious with what do i listen to this or that if you get what i mean. Now ive started to make myself familiar with my PClink software etc the past few weeks and im eager to learn how to do minor setups or tweaks etc so im not relieing on my tuner so much and obviously saving myself abit hurt in the back pocket. 
      Now back to the question at hand.... Im wondering if theres and one who could please share there knowledge and wisdom with setting all my values, timing, fuel etc when i have launch control armed and engaged, or even a launch tune file they can possibly send me to load onto my tune. Ive figured out the setup of my digital inputs turning launch control on etc and its obvisously on its pre set factory settings. It engages but doesnt sound the greatest or as angry as it should i feel. Hence reaching out to you good buggers. 
      Cheers in advance for any info and help yous maybe able to give me.
      Cheers Shaun
