This seems to imply that they've changed it though. Am I completely misreading this?

They did change the design of the front lip and I really dont like it. Check the outside corners of the lip. They tried squaring them off and it just ruins the flow in my opinion. (compare to pictures posted above)

I'm just wondering if the aftermarket intercoolers would still fit behind those new grilles? hmm

Remove the front fogs and re-plumb. Those should make better ducts areas anyway.
