    firstly y? secondly a front mount is for cooling air not fluid and if you did how would u fill it up intercoolers are sealed air tight. why dont you just get a bigger stock one or get a custom one from micks metal craft etc. there would be plenty of places that would do it any fabricators really

    firstly, he said why, he wanted to know if it would work better, "but whether it would work better or not???" read the post thoroughly.

    and now he knows why, its a genuine question, as some people dont know the difference apart from the way they look.

    its probs a custom job they flip up upside down cut a hole for a filler cap and mount it in factory pos. i would think that you would need to flip it the downside of them is most have both pipes at 1 end eg inlet is bottom right wen lookin front on and out let is bottom left. you could reverse one tank so outlet in at top inlet is bottom or vice verca
