Just my 2 cents, but the Supra sidemount wasn't that hard to install. The trouble I ran into was the fact I didn't have the stock 2 1/2 inch stock rubber elbow that came on the I/C. The supra sidemount is HUGE compared to the stocker...I think over double the size. Anyway...I will be posting a review shortly on my install, and a couple of mods I added that I think will be beneficial. I would almost say the install was easy.

i just bought a Dejon 1G sidemount upgraded IC.

it is the 1G stock intercooler with 2.25" inlet and outlets welded on.

this IC does NOT bolt right on.

the lower engine support bar that holds the front motor mount is in the way of the IC.

the IC's lower inlet pipe hits this support bar. i had to cut the support bar lip off and then cut back lengthwise about 4". and then i beat the metal in with hammer.

this was the only way i could get the IC pipe to fit properly and be able to get a coupling over the inlet pipe.

i have yet to test out the car with the pocket logger.

Grizzly- do you have awd? I am fwd and it works fine. Maybe that is the difference? Of course, I modded my own stocker, but maybe there is indeed a difference between the 90 and later years?

yes, i do have the AWD. now that you mention that, i dont think the FWD has that front support.

so the install should be no problem on a FWD..... but a pain in the ass on a AWD

Another thought- Dejon has come up with a pneumatic sytem to stiffen and raise the rear of the car for better traction, a FWD trick, so maybe their shop car is FWD?

I don't have an engine support in close proximity to the ic.

It is not any harder on an AWD than a FWD. The diference from the 90 IC is it doesn't have the extended inlet pipe on the bottom, it has a short, straight in connection whereas the 91-93 have a bend and extension on them. If there are any other differences, somebody please point them out. Anybody who thinks installing a Supra IC is a pain in the ass obviously has no patience or the proper tools or knowhow/mechanical ability to get it done properly. Mine looks stock and wasn't hard at all with proper planning and some minor cutting.

i bought some 2.5" intercooler pipes (upper AND lower), bigger turbo outlet, and 2.5" throttle body elbow- for $150

so I figured 2.5" Lower IC pipe to a 1g 1-3/4" inlet would be a waste, so I had Indy Race Cores mod my 1g SMIC for 2.5" in/outs to match the pipes nicely

I noticed a ~4psi increase without touching the MBC (over stock piping+SMIC). After turning the boost down to ~16, with the piping, SMIC, and K&N, I was able to chirp the 1-2 shift (stock clutch) regularly, and noticed the water temps were much more stable than before the SMIC+pipes.

if i was gonna get a sidemount for a 2g, it would be the one from hahn's. nice big i/c (bigger than dejon's anyway), don't have to hack up any metal or anything for install, and still good for up to 400 horsepower. if i was going for more power than that, i'd go for a frountmount anyway....which of course i'm shooting for around 600hp so this discussion doesn't really apply to me. just throwing in my 2 cents.

I'd been curious about the Hahn sidemount IC as well, but have decided to try the Supra side mount, seems like a much better dollar to hp ratio

You won't be sorry. As long as you put in the time and effort it will look and perform sweet

You heard wrong. Once again, if installed with patience and time it looks stock. Mine hangs down about a half to three quaters of an inch more than the stock IC did.
