If you can buy a "whole intercooler setup" , with intercooler, bov and piping for $200 or less, I strongly encourage you to do so. I think I've broken down the value of this setup clearly in my first post, and the asking price is fair imo.

I thought that screen name was familiar.

When I first saw the coldside I was like what the hell, that looks like it for a FWD. But he twisted the last elbow so it would be flat on the floor.

$200 for a GReddy Type-R??? WTF is he smoking? I got a GReddy Type-R off here and a GReddy Type-S locally. Combined price for both was less than $150...

Did you say 500WHP!? O.o

That's a GOOD deal then. the Type-R and Type-S are both discontinued and both VERY desirable. IIRC Neogenesis just sold his Type-R for $150.

otherwise all his piping is junk.

Neo actually sold his Type-R to me... I didn't quite pay $150. But close. I basically stole the Type-S from the local guy. He was kind of a dumbass to say the least. Haha!

The cast elbows are surprisingly expensive new. but the silicone elbows are not.
