Default NA Intercooler for AC and PS

Looking for ways to save money on my soon to be turbo set up lead me to the intercooler. I could save a large amount of money if I can find a IC that is cheaper then the planed FM or Begi but still fits with AC and PS. I am looking for something around the 14'' range similar to the FM or Begi unit. I have searched this multiple times in many ways without finding anything worth my while. So if you have experience with a unit or know of one that works please feel free to list it and or give your opinion. If the thread is answered but you still have your own opinion or know of one please feel free to add i'm sure it could help me or others who want to retain AC and PS (PS stays until I save enough up from the damage of the turbo to get a non PS rack )

Thanks!

Yes but im searching more to find one that doesent require as much modification to fit (like no bending or moving of parts) similar to the more "bolt on" like design of the fm and begi units. Should of specified that in the OP my bad

Yea, intercooler generally doesn't require any additional customer service so he'd be fine with that as well.

Yeah, lets refrain from recommending the company with the worst customer service ever.

I guess I'm out of touch as I haven't bought anything there in about 2 years. But 2 years ago . . . no issues. Hmmmm.

Miraculously not. I think Bell Intercoolers is supporting most of the business (complete speculation) but I would be surprised if they are still getting a lot of Miata business.

I wish I could agree. I feel like recently once a week we get an intro thread to the tune of "Hello I am building a turbo Miata, been trolling for a few years now as I build knowledge/set-up, finally posting build thread.. Purchased my BEGi Alpha/Omega/S3/sshit/kit". I don't know how these guys miss the rep of BEGi, but its quite evident, especially on MT.
