Default Any one using this I/C?

Thanks to Brian, for pointing me to this I/C.

http://www.cxracing.com/mm5/merchant...ry_Code=IC30CO

Just wondering if anyone is using this I/C? Is it a decent unit?
Any one have any pictures of it mounted?
Any other cheap options??

Thanks

Many people use that intercooler.
I have no personal expierince with it, but if it was used with the Stripes kit, it must be good!

I believe that would be a how.... Not sure if you caught that Slidin, or if you're joking.

That is the I/C I was gonna go with till I found a good deal on the Starion I/C with Jims pipes.

I believe that you can buy that intercooler from ebay for a few bucks cheaper. I think it's from cxracing even. But that is the intercooler I will be using when I finally finish gathering all of my parts for the turbo. While I'm no intercooler expert, it looks to be well made and a quality intercooler.

Thats kind of what I was thinking too. I would like a nice wide I/C to fill the mouth of the bumper nice. It would be nice to see a couple of pixs of it installed though, because the price seems right...

I think its important to note that this intercooler, that your calling tiny, can more then support most of the turbos that people on this site run. Bigger is not necessarily better....
