If the pictures are accurate, there's a variance in the included bends.

All are of tube-n-fin construction. Less restrictive (relative to bar-n-plate) to air flowing through to the radiator, but more restrictive to air passing though from the turbo to the intake.

so would you recomended a bar-n-plate construction over a tube-n-fine construction or is it a very small difference?
let me know what you think of this kit also with bar-n-plate:

if you make the turbo outlet point down, then yes.

I used a universal flex hose myself.

Again after you advice and all the information in other threads i went for this intercooler:

FMIC INTERCOOLER+ TURBO PIPING KIT MIATA RX7 PROTEGE TC:eBay Motors (item 120460524978 end time Aug-25-09 18:40:19 PDT)

It came with more parts that most other kits on ebay and with the money i saved i bought a blow off valve with cast flange for $42 with free shipping, ready to bolt on.
