Default Which Intercooler??

Ok guys will make this short & sweet. I did a search but didn't get an exact answer so looking for some help..

Need to know if anyone can point me to an IC that will fit with no issues on a '95 with PS & AC and ABS(I assume it has), and flow/cool well. Don't need the best of the best, actually the cheaper the better without risking having issues. Also looking for somethign I can just mount with the usual hardware when I get it, no fab or build ur own ideas as I dont have the means/ability. Need 100% sure answers from people who have, or know from experience.

FYI this will be based around a gt2560 turbo, looking at about 220ish whp, maybe a lil more/lil less...I think thats prob all info needed, but I'm sure you'll let me know if I leave something out...

PS--links would be appreciated!!!

eBay, and you will be making your own bracket no matter what you buy. There is no such thing as "the usual hardware".

Yea sorry should have a been a lil clearer abotu "usual hardware"...I meant I know that with these you have to mount it yourself, and source hardware yourself(brackets bolts, etc)...

I meant to say I cant fab up end tanks or anything like that..

Anyway, I know ebay...but need dimesnions if I go that route...Thats what I'm looking for, and the reason I said specifics was that because I know on ebay there's all diff one's...wanna make sure I dont get some weird cheapass bs one that doesnt do squat..(rows, fins, whatever).

Do a search for intercooler and read the threads that are like " I got a new intercooler" or "Intercooler upgrade" crap like that. There are quite a few that fit, just depends on how big you want to go.

Figured I'd contribute back in case anyone else needs the info...Esp guys like me on a budget...On the site it's $89 + $28.75 shipping(cheapest/slowest option)...Total of $117.75 (plus tax if your in CA, not for me!)

Found this, http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/18x12...spagenameZWD1V

And its the same one, for $65 + same shipping is $92....this way you get to keep an extra $25 in pocket...

The seller is CRX, and I had the 2 sites open, all measurements are the same...so I really dont know why its $25 cheaper, but there ya go...
