You probably won't be able to notice the difference, but honestly I would use the JDM Sport one. Fins inside look MUCH better.

Both suck but both should do the job.

I love my egay intercooler. Intake temps are always quite manageable.

If you are going to use either use the shitty top one, it's a delta fin inspired one so it'll flow a lot better than the bar/plate one.

Being a brand ***** to a Chinese rebranding factory is a terrible life's ambition.

Oh I just saw these other comments. Installed the Mishi IC and the car actually blew up. Like, literally just burst into flames. It was just that bad of a unit I guess.

wtf. are the fins not even louvered like the JDM one?

both are poor, but I'd stick with the delta core tube&fin beat to hell IC over the non-IC.



Vlad this might flow better inside, but I'd rather have 5psi of pressure drop and 80% efficiency than no pressure loss from air passing through a pipe with slots and 10% efficiency.

This made my ******* day.

I honestly thought we are going easy on him. Ive seen other newbs make less stupid claims and get their asses reamed.

That was my thinking.

we *think* we are idealists. But here we are, telling him he bought the wrong eBay intercooler and suggesting he should have bought a DIFFERENT eBay intercooler. Just ONE of us (you, sean, in post #135) quietly suggested that he get a true, quality, name-brand intercooler, and nobody recognized it.

We are mf'in cheapskates.

Ok, let me rephrase that.

We are cheap *** idealists

Also, as Vlad pointed out, very little(if any?) empirical data exist on any of these egay coolers. Even the one we tout is based on anecdote from visual appearance.

I will post some data later in regards to IATs using the two intercoolers I have and then we all sing Kumbaya after my car blows up again from using the Mishi one.

Wasn't able to do testing with the new IC tonight due to other obligations. No explosive motors tonight ;(

Way back, JasonC swapped out his AVO barNplate for a TDR tube/fin.

-Pressure loss:
TDR is better by 0 to 0.5 psi
2.5 psi pressure loss at 10 psi of manifold pressure, est 240 whp
I picked up an eBay (EMUSA) delta fin (thought Brainy got the same design) at that time for improved exchanger flow (I run AC). The core/tube ends look like typicalsteve's eBay/JDMsport on the end, but just past the entry you can see the fins have vertical, angled slits that dip into the air flow. I wonder if the JDMSport is not the same- you just can't see it in the photo.

m2cupcar, thanks for the detailed response! I will be doing testing on the intercooler this weekend.

My 180 tstat and gasket from BEGI two days ago. My box of seals, gaskets, and hoses came from Rosenthal yesterday. I will finally be able to get this clutch in- Woo!

I installed these guys last night. The car actually doesn't stop at all now. Like, I'll press on the brakes and nothing happens. Been having to use my e-brake for now. \_(ツ)_/


I'm blaming the holes in the rotors for the stopping issue. And they look terrible. So
