Question Is this TMIC Any-good??

Hi have bought this aftermarket intercooler http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...MEWN:IT&ih=009

Is this compatible with my 93 import,or is it a piece of old alloy cheap junk or a bargain??
Regards Tony.

This was once a bloke who wrote a dyno graph with a Bic biro and people believed it to a degree.

Only problem was the pen smudged on the graph.
