Is this interooler set up efficient for 15psi? and do you know if it is possible to run it on the begi kit with minimal modification?

Its a large quality bar and plate intercooler and the pipes exit on the drivers side so I cant imagine that with a few couplers you cant make it meet any turbo system. It was designed for the FM systems and I had it on a Greddy turbo. Its larger than the current "stripes" intercooler I have that I plan on running 15 psi with. It also mounts MUCH easier.

shouldnt be a problem, especially easy if your turbo is clocked so the outlet is facing up.

I'm very interested, can you tell me the condition of the kit. The only problem i might have is that i have a rb tubular swaybar so i might have some clearance issues.

Help me out here guys. Would this work on a 1.8l engine with a T25 & Bell manifold without having to mod it much?

I would modify it much. Concider it a core and build the piping yourself. I had a FM-II intercooler, and lost several psi across the intercooler piping. It really hurts response. When I went to the 'new style' tubing, the molded stuff, the car feels much more like an NA car - pressing the gas has an immediate effect on the engine.

Clocking a turbo is easy, don't let that stop you.

I know clocking a turbo is easy, but my filter sits by the headlight cover and my turbo sits lower than the turbo on a greddy kit. If I clocked the turbo to the stock greddy position the piping would interfere w/ the filter so i need piping that would work w/ the turbo clocked at 12
