v-mount intercoolers are used in places where you have more room front to back than side to side. if done right the piping will be slightly less than a regular i/c as well. also used when you mount the i/c behind the rad.
:werd:Boosted2.0 said:If you want the shortest IC piping and least pressure drop you need to look into Air to Water ICs. You can get some awsome and short piping lengths with those setups. If you run a seperate resivoir you can also run ice water through them when drag racing for rediculously effective cooling.
