Also have you looked at how the intercooler mounts. Those tabs main keep it from moving side to side and from falling forward. Most of the weight is helped by the bottom metal tabs that bolt to the lower radiator support.
Sent from another garage.
I have installed two of them.... I am talking out of experience, no just from pictures.
Have you seen how Levels mounts? personally it is the only intercooler that mounts solid and not to plastic tabs.
NOT really sure why this is on going, I understand you are standing up for CPE because of your "title" with them but I can openly dislike something and not have to explain myself 10 times.
again I haven't heard of issues. I have installed two, neither of them have complained or had issues. It was just my thought from the first time I installed one that the mounting was not to MY liking. I have offered to both of them better mounting solutions but haven't had the time to fab anything up for them and most likely will never worry about it.
