I'd say stick with CXracing intercooler or go with a high-end one. I'm of the opinion that the eBay intercoolers are just fine, and that one sounds plenty big for your power levels. Watch IATs and see how it goes. You can always upgrade the intercooler later.
I don't know why this idea never struck me before

I've been in contact with Begi this week and I've gotten back timely responses from Stephanie. She is working with me and answering my questions about a kit and changing some of the components. It's very likely they will get my business due to the quick service and prices we have discussed.
