Has anyone managed to keep the support beam and install the GReddy intercooler? I know the instructions say to remove it and never say to put it back on and most people don't but can you do it even with slight modification? Not having that could cause big problems if anyone were to have front end damage.

I tried to....it would not fit. There has to be a way though....with some welding and cutting....

Is it even close or would it involve major modification?

I'm pretty sure the CN intercooler fits with that bar. I wonder why GReddy couldn't do the same.

ARCTICBLUE, with the GReddy BOV, you don't need the flange do you? The piping already has one on it, right?
