2010 SS is getting a ZL1 LSA install

I'm getting an LSA installed in my 2010 2SS 6m, well I hope I can. This is the issue, I cannot take my front bumper off. When I got the car it came with this wide body kit installed, all molded into one piece. I love it, looks sick and what not. But now that I am throwing on this blower, I am going to need some input on installing the intercooler. A buddy had a Maggie installed on his 11' SS and he just leaned his radiator back towards his engine, in order to squeeze in his intercooler(without removing his bumper). Now, can I do that? I think my LSA intercooler is mounted different on ZL1's. Can I go with using a Maggie intercooler instead of the ZL1's? Any ideas or help will be greatly appreciated.

idk much about that whole thing...but couldnt you just remove the radiator all together, install the intercooler and then reinstall the rad?

You could be right. This is the thing though, I'm nowhere near my car. I'm getting all these parts ordered and shipped to Houston. I'm overseas, and while I finish up over here I'm trying to get everything in line for when I do return home. Now do you know if the LSA intercooler and a Maggie intercooler are the same?

I'd just take the radiator out and install it. It's not too horrible to take out.

I figured it'll be a quick fix. Just not being around my friggin ride is frustrating as it is. SO I wanted to see what thoughts you all had. Once I get back, I think this paranoia should subside. What about the intercooler? Is the maggie the same as the ZL1's?
