Wondering what kind of intercoolers you guys chose to buy when swaping in the SR20. I'm looking for an IC now and was hoping to find a reliable one for a decent price. Any suggestions?
WTF?!!? I don't know where you get your prices from.KaOz said:Plus, you'll be spending 1/4 -1/2 the price more then you would either a GReddy or HKS intercooler!
KaOz said:I would list them as follows:
1) GReddy V-Spl
2) HKS Type - S
3) Blitz LM
The reason GReddy is # 1 in my list is because it *like mentioned before* has the best cooling efficiency. It is also very reasonable in terms of $ for quality. (Best bang for your back, as they say).
The second is HKS because anything they make is excellent, however, at a higher price. So, if money is an issue... stick with the GReddy one!
Lastly, is Blitz! The reason is because Blitz parts are so overly-expensive and *to me* are more about the BLING BLING as they call it, rather then functionality. Yes, it does work - and mighty fine, but it is nicely polished... and looks all pretty... WELL, all I have to say is we are NISSAN DRIVERS/FANS not CIVICs! So, the ALL SHOW is not a major concern in most our minds! Plus, you'll be spending 1/4 -1/2 the price more then you would either a GReddy or HKS intercooler!
Hybrid are an Australian company. They make excellent quality intercoolers that match the performance of much higher priced HKS and Greddy etc. I highly recommend these.winter_sean said:I'd recommend a "Hybrid" intercooler. It's an indy company that sells on ebay and the cooling capacity is just as good (if not better) than any of the big 3 intercoolers. You might be leary to buy one b/c they don't have the reputation of some of the bigger names, but I put one of their kits on my s13 and it works great - nice looking unit too, and definitely cheaper than greddy, hks, or blitz. They claim to be good up to 600hp - some pretty impressive specs - check em out.
