GodSpeed intercooler help!!

Hey guys I'm about to do my install on my intercooler tomorrow..I heard I need taps to hold the intercooler, do I really need it? Or it's okay? Also if I do, can someone tell me how or let me know a link of the DIY. I did some research but I can't find it! Please let me know ASAP thank you in advance!

You don't need a tap. The piping will hold everything together but if you are worried get yourself some industrial strength zip-ties and zip tie it to the front metal bumper support.

It will work, it's just not the best/most ideal way to mount it. Dousn't really matter as it won't be seen. I would personally weld mounting tabs to the bottom and top of the core to secure it.
