Yes, from a C2 turbo (90s turbo). This is in lieu of a mechanical version which was removed when your new intercooler was installed.

The inside diameter of the union between the your inlet pipe and intercooler is about 2.5" dia. Calculate the area pi x Radius squared. This equals about 4.9 square inches of area. If your car makes stock boost (about .8 bar or 12 psi) then there is about 60lbs of force pushing the intercooler off the inlet pipe. You may as well go and try to lift your intercooler upwards off the inlet pipe and see how much it moves. If the anchor points for your intercooler are really that bad you are probably best off using Jfairmans solution displayed in an earlier post.
