ridin59vette Speaking of the bracket, a local metal shop i do a lot of work with through my Job is donating a 1/8" steel bracket, should be ready to go in a day or two . Any one need a fuel pump for a neon?

DC_SAAB good point... if you paid $450.00 or purchased from GS. Still cost me more than 200, but guess I looked at all of the modifications you have to make as a cost as well, rather than going with something that is spec'd and fits perfectly.. while matching the application and turbo boost for a stock look.

I was looking at the time and effort as a cost too. I noticed some making a special bracket, modifying the steel bumper and moving a/c lines around.. sacrificing the function of other items.. just seemed like a lot of work.. but suppose its all relative.

I suppose I could have researched more forums, sourced some aluminum parts and gotten creative.. but as long as what you have is working for you.. great.

Why spend 450$ on something that will perform every bit as well if not better, For a fraction of the cost? I have maybe 100$ In this as of right now

My e-bay IC cost me $145... and is bigger than the ETS ...hehehe

mike saunders ETS is $450? I think mine was $200, and other Ebay ones with mlarger core sizes than the ETS are $100-120.

You can either cut them or there's 2 bolts I believe that you remove and the pipes slide right out.., take a lOok and you'll see

mike saunders You've got about 9 inches of free space before you start pushing down the IC below the lower crossmember....
10-12-2008 03:11 PM
turbojohnny i'm pretty sure that IC is too big if you're running a stock turbo on your car

Matt613 Hey there, I'm new to this forum and saw this and it really caught my attention. Right now i'm in the process of ripping out the stock i'c on my 99' 9-3 and dropping in the biggest one i can find. I'm not sure if anyone here is familiar with this car, http://www.twinpipe.se/ but i got the idea from there. My plan is to run a godspeed v mount intercooler ( http://www.godspeedproject.com/store...roducts_id=168 ) because it looks somewhat the same and following the jak stoll dimensions i know it will fit. Now the only difference is the height over the jak stoll one. My A/C is broken so taking out the condensor doesn't faze me much, And remounting the horn can easily be done. I was just wondering where you got that blue silicone hose from, coming from the throttle body, it looks like a replica of the stock pipe just a hell of alot bigger.

8valvegrowl Makes sense. Cool.
06-05-2008 04:38 AM
NahumCC Because the clocking of the t25 is slightly different in its location of the compressor outlet. Just minor enough though that you make the td04 hose still work.

8valvegrowl Sweet. I wonder why they have different PN's in the EPC?
