This is mine...in my '89. It took approx. 8weeks of fab time, design time and testing.

My aim was:
1) Retain the A\C
2) Have it fit under the stock hood
3) Make it extremely efficient, minimal psi drop and overall well designed
4) Have a core larger than the Kokeln (which is 642cu.in)
5) Cheaper than the Kokeln
6) Easy to remove
7) Has to look good!

The results:
1) A\C retained - Yes!
2) Fits under the stock hood - Yes with some convincing (wink)!
3) Efficient - Yes!!! - Bar and plate core - rhomboid shaped, giving the air slightly more distance to travel and hence cool before entering the TB. The rhomboid core was extremely difficult to cut and mate to the end tanks, as opposed to the typical square \ rectangular IC cores. Pressure drop only 0.45psi at 14psi inlet.
4) Core volume - 685cu.in, so larger volume that the Kokeln
5) Cost was cheaper than the Kokeln
6) I can remove it in about 10minutes
7) Looks incredible - I think!

I had to remove the rear wiper to make it fit and also slightly notch the rear deck lid where it was rubbing, easily and neatly done and repainted.

Here it is:
Side by side with the stock:
