1983 300 sd intercooler and piping fabrication

I decided to install an intercooler on my 300sd. Here are some pics of the fab and piping. I have to retake pics of the intercooler I'm still fabricating brackets to mount it.

Looks good, what size intercooler are you running? A side mount or front?
I'm planning on a little Audi Quattro 2" plastic tanked unit on my om602.962 into a 78 toyota.

UPDATE

Here are the rest of the pics of my intercooler install, had to resize to fit. I noticed a much smoother and broader torque curve, seems to pull stronger and with much less effort getting up to free way speeds.
