those pictures dont show crap on the cylinder walls. to do it correctly you should at least hone the cylinder walls if your putting new rings in. you want a 45* cross hatch on the cyl walls and eve if you can still see the factory cross hatch there you should still hone them.

i think SS dosnt get as hot so there may be a heat differential issue. but i have never done this so i say just get a 308L SS flange and dont risk it.

you can do a Front Mount InterCooler with a stock look.
i have a front mount.. paint it black and barly cut your plastic bumper. i also choped up my metal bumper support so air can flow to the top of the intercooler. a side mount is a waste of time in my opinion.
