Default Cheapest place to get turbo inlet/outlet adapters?

These are the 2 and 3 bolt 2-3" pipe adapters so you can hook a pipe to your intake and intercooler. I found them at 30-40 bucks a piece which i think is a little high for a 5 dollar flange and a 2" pipe welded to it.

If you are using a T25 with the 3 bolt outlet, just grind the ****** off or scavenge ebay. I just sold one for 25.

Yah, I need a set too. I think I'll just grind down the outlet and buy a flange for the inlet.

Do you need the ATP one specifically, or would you be open to using the stock adapter(s) from an SR20det?

They are all called something like this "Aluminum - GT28R/GT25R/T25 Compressor Outlet Adapter" They all seem to be made from the same company. Seems like a monopoly, i mean 2 flanges and a 2 1" pipes welded together for 80 bucks?

Hope, ATP is the only place that carries them. If you find some another place, they'll be the ATP pieces at a mark-up. Monopoly indeed.

I built my own using exhaust flanges and welded a couple of 2& 2 1/2" pipes, painted em red and called it good...

There was this guy in TX making them for cheap IIRC his name was Sam, http://www.bmcrace.com/index.php?cPath=132
