apparently during crash tests, cost comes into a factor, when you have a frontal impact, the cost of the intercooler is too much for small crashes.

Foc us has this theory: The reason why they do this, is to protect the american market, if we could buy skylines and evo lancers, it would tarnish the amercan sales of stangs.. etc..
Julian I think that was only for the EVO7, that was the main reason it never came to North America. The entire shape of the front end on the EVO 8 had been changed, could be an improvement during crash tests.
