Looks slightly smaller than my intercooler which I thought was too small already.

I'll be impressed if you can make it work while keeping the endtanks stock.

What are the dimensions and inlet/outlet diameter? What is the general consensus of it's power rating?

This is just one of my random splurges on Ebay. But it will add nicely to my pile o' parts sitting in the spare bedroom.

For SRT4 owners, it's one of the first things replaced. The stock design is limited by the intrusion of the crash bar.

Christ, I bought a $60 chinese IC off ebay and it's running great. I wouldn't try to use that thing to save $30.

I've been using mine with my built motor @15psi for the last few weeks and before that a stock 1.8 @7psi on a 2871

It keeps my IAT's pretty low so I'm satisfied.

No mods to the endtanks, using a big rad aswell.

For the custom fab associated with using a stock intercooler from another car you gotta at least get a decent one! I sold the stock intercooler off my old evo VIII for ~$100 and they're not upgraded until a bit down the modification route (crazy since they run 19psi stock). What's next, "Found an FC Turbo II tmic for $15, wanted to stay oem mazda, check out my trashcan hoodscoop"

I seem to remember when starion, volvo, and FC intercoolers were the norm for DIY boosted miatas..not more than 2 years or so ago... did a decent enough job for low power apps.. why the hell not?

I'm honestly surprised that the SRT4's FMIC in particular fits with the way the endtanks run. Kudos to y'all for getting it to work!
