    Question What Intercooler is this and should i still use it?

    I was told this is the XS intercooler and looks like it.... this was in the GTX and bracket shown.... should i still use or buy a new one? there was some lite moisture in the very back i noticed...

    apparently saltwater has gotten into the pipes and IC but have not noticed ANY milkly oil now but this happened some weeks ago and multiple oil changes were done to get water out...

    NOPE, that is NOT a Piranha....

    Thats an XS with tabs welded on to use the Piranha mounting bracket...

    Its got some salt corrosion...

    I wouldn't trust it at all!...

    if the cooler has TWO holes in the front for water inlet outlet its a Pirahana that has had one mount welded back on after it broke..........if the inlet and outlet holes are front and rear of the cooler then the cooler is XS that has had both bottom mounts welded on to utilize the Pirahna bracket as Danny stated.

    I have never seen a XS or anything similar to XS that had those mounting tabs. I think if you want a new XS to mount on that bracket with those tabs you will need to put the tabs on.
    If you dont mind not using the tabs you probably could fab some way to use some straps to hold XS on that bracket.

    Good luck!
