No mounting tabs on the sides?
See my EDIT above.  My pic was before they offered this "SQ IC".  Had to fab up mounts then.

So we have now confirmed the inlet/outlet pipes are indeed 2.25 inch in diameter and not 2.5 inch as CX states in their ad and why the hard pipes Kay.d.m produced where also 2.25 inch .

Well that kinda sucks.  2.5 would be perfect and the extra .25 would not be bad spool reducing overkill if not quite up to that need for most mid-range turbos wanting this IC.

Also with Chad's intake.  Note the total IC piping from turbo to TB measured 48", a far cry from the what 10 feet of stock hoses & pipes with OVCP.

These are really old from initial MPI install fit, and it's been updated since incl the oil cooler mount.  The washer fluid mount moved too, but no biggie on those...
