Super cheap eBay intercooler

Don't think I would buy it but I was curious if anyone had tried it haha. Quite a few eBay options now, I always wonder if any are half decent besides Godspeed.

DON'T do it. Made that mistake with my old setup a few years back. You can tell the car doesn't run the same with an inefficient intercooler. If you plan to do a custom setup, LMK. I have a custom setup (w/ a ETS intercooler) on mine.

GodSpeed V1 works fine -- about only 'ebay' intercooler I would buy (I have on e myself)

Some intercooler hose modification required. More modifications are needed if you're installing it onto a GLI

otherwise save for the neuspeed FMIC, or a larger wedge intercooler.
