Whos car is this?
Brian, I totally missed this thread as I was in the hospital when it posted. The car in question is my 1986 930SE with the factory "increased performance" engine option which among other things included the larger factory intercooler as seen in the photograph.

additional info on the car:
1986 Porsche Slant Nose Turbo with only 2,500 miles Porschebahn Weblog

I have additional photos to add for those interested including the label (unfortunately out of focus) but the label appears to be the same manufacturer as on the stock factory cooler as seen in Dave's (kycarguy) Turbo. Note the date from the factory grease pencil on the rubber intercooler shroud is July 2, 1985.
Hope this sheds a bit more light on the "mystery" intercooler.
