How was it done on my old truck you were working on a few months ago??

That had a top mount and a WRX scoop last time I saw it 8)

yer yours was near vertical , spotted a pic today bar across the engine two tabs to hold the cooler but mine only has two tabs on inlet end , may have to tack two mounts on other end

When adding a top mount intercooler ,many people use threaded rod (4 rods mounted vertically) , with nuts/lock nuts to secure the intercooler at the correct height.
