CP-E intercooler / oil cooler install

For those of you with this combination installed, does the oil cooler mount in front of the intercooler core? As my car doesn't currently have an oil cooler, I'm quite interested in this setup.

I've seen mixed reviews on the FMIC and would appreciate input which current users may have.

Don't think so - mounts on top of FMIC.

OP is asking about the FMIC OC combo. The OC mounts on top of FMIC.

I'm pretty happy with my setup. But I was not that concerned about having the lowest inlet air temps since I knew I'd add meth. I had a concern about high oil temps causing limp mode. It's worked out good. After several track days I've yet to limp. Meth helps oil temps too but I would limp for sure without the extra OC.

Def on top.....the only place it can mount (two screw locations) without hanging around loose, which is a bad idea.
