Your posts would be easy to read and understand if they actually contained sentences. I wouldn't blame zoomin's lack of comprehension on him.

The DIY system works by you taking a look at a part and saying "Hmm. I think I can make that work for my application." Then you modify it and make it work or you put it on Craigslist and try something else. You can either look at it and decide for yourself, search and read some posts regarding other people using a "pobe" intercooler, or you should buy "Guaranteed Complete Ebay Intercooler Kit" and learn what complete doesn't mean.

Any way you choose to go, please remember that you catch more helpful responses with a properly employed shift key and actual coherence.

If the IC piping is car spacific then the amount of work required to make it work is going to be dependent on your IC placement and IC pipe routing in relation to the host car. If your car is real close to the host car, then you may be able to get away with just some longer couplings to connect the piping together. IMO making your own IC piping would be the way to go, because every kit i have seen and installen never relly fits right.

If you would type so that people understand and can convey the right question, you just might get the right answer. The shift and space keys are there for a reason, please LEARN HOW to use them! I have tons of ideas to make that IC work, but you obviously don't deserve to know.

It bolts right up. A Miata and a Probe are sister chassis, I'm surprised you didn't know that.
