I have a 944 IC, and I think it works great, the
endtanks are a little restrictive, but that can be
fixed, I'll post some pics in the next couple of days.
 The bad part is fitting it in the car, unless you
have a different bumper.  Either way, if you want a
big IC, you have to do some cutting I guess.  I still
like the Isuzu NPR IC's also.
