Cheap Intercoolers

Hi

Just looking for some advise, I have seen a few cheap front mounted intercoolers around for a couple of hundred quid that say they are good for 650bhp and then there are some HKS that are around a grand.

Is there that much difference or are you just paying for the name? Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Cheers

Re: Cheap Intercoolers

you might find the quality is different - i.e thickness of metal and quality of welds and fitment. Think HKS stuff is a wee bit over priced personally. Would look into a few different brands. You can be sure a brand name has been tested for actual bhp gains where as the cheap one is just a kit threw together with pie in the sky gains
