Default Ebay Intercooler and piping

Has anyone bought a ebay intercooler and piping? Are they any good? Please give me your opinion if you are running a ebay intercooler. Thanks

Search CXracing, tons of people on here use them.. Rinse, repeat. Judging by your other threads you are suffering from lack of search or FAQ reading.

IC is the one decent ebay CDM purchase that you can make. Well, the recirc BOV that I got from siliconeinteakes.com is working perfectly and for $30 it has to be CDM as well.

CXracing...I think their Ebay tag is Just-intercoolers are pretty good/reliable. I bought one of their kits with bends/straights, silicone/t-bolts and quite happy with everything.

These kits don't really fit anything out of the box. You have to cut the pipes and use the silicone connectors to piece it together. But since you are designing it yourself. You shouldn't have a problem. Many people have used them on theirs.

You're going to end up with an intercooler and a bunch of pipes (straight, 45* and 90* bends) and random couplers. You'll need a chop or hacksaw to cut the piping to fit. It'll only work with AC/PS if you are smarter than the piping and route it appropriately.

See my build thread (link in sig) for how I routed mine.
