A 3" thick core would fit, but the overall core size would have to be pretty small. There are things I could do to free up some additional space such as relocate the A/C condenser and chuck the AFM and rear wiper assembly. Those changes would allow for a 27x6x3 flowing around 1500 CFM. That's a possibility down the road, but for now I'd like to keep those things in place.

The intercooler I have in mind will be placed directly behind the fan housing and proceed back over the intake manifold. Kind of like this setup except the intercooler will be about 3-4 inches closer to the fan.
