Default Mazdaspeed Miata Intercooler

How decent are these as intercoolers go? I can get one for fairly cheap and I wanted some smart peoples opinions on them before I went for it.

It will be going on a 92 miata with no a/c coil to worry about. I have a turbo but I might get rid of it and purchase another, but I'm thinking a small/medium sized turbo with little to no boost lag. If turbo size even matters in choosing an intercooler, and however much boost is needed to get me to the 180/220 hp range.

question is, used mazdaspeed miata intercooler. cheap, should i get it?

Some of what you asked can be found in the sticky, dont ask any questions here that are easily available, like those covered in the sticky, or you will get flamed.

As for the cooler, it will do fine.

It will do fine on a small turbo setup and 180-200hp goals, but otherwise its weak and there's a reason everyone lets them go super cheap.

for the price I'd rather have the CXracing 12x12x3 IC.

I have the old style FM intercooler, just took it off my car last week. I don't have any piping for it though. I was gonna take photos of it and put it in the classifieds, but make me an offer.
