The tail on your '77 is different from the '78+. See thread, but the former is a whale tail and the 78+ style tea tray was designed to provide clearance for an intercooler. So in addition to reconfiguring your vacuum lines you may need to swap tails to fit an intercooler.

What's your goal with fitting an intercooler to your '77 3.0L turbo? I understand the ambient temps are on the hot side where you are, so obviously an intercooled turbo ought to provide more efficient boost. But these '77 "Ur" turbos are now starting to gain value among collectors, particularly ones that are in mostly unmolested state. Obviously it's your car so you should set it up how you want, but if more boost is your goal or more power generally you may want to pick a mod that's easier to return to stock so you retain more of the value if/when you sell. Like a K27 turbo or aftermarket exhaust etc, assuming you still have the stock ones fitted to your car.
