Just got a FMIC from Ebay. The finish is excellent, no bent fins, welds look fantastic.

The only downside was I needed to get the brackets welded on.

ebay is a great tool if you know what you are doing
ebay intercoollers are great. i use one for my 500whp integra and it works great. i know lots of 600whp+ honda that all use $150 ebay intercoolers and they are work great. i will soon get a $120 ams copy ebay intercooler and i'm sure it will work fine.

also pleple need to learn a 3" pipie is a 3" pipe. ebay exhaust and intercooler piping also work great. its outragious that companies charge 700+ for a 3" cat back when for the evo the exhaust is so straight with only a few minor bends in the back of the car. i also dont understain who in the right mind would pay $200.00 for a name brand licp which is basically almost just a regular u bend. anybody that can change their oil can make the licp for like $40.00.

ebay o2 housing also work great

never but ebay no name tubular turbo manifold and turbos. they suck and always crack and break

on name brand stuff. most companies cannot match ebays pricing on name brand items. where else can u get rc1000cc injectors for $310?? , hawk front and rear pads for $140.
there are allways deal on ebay is you just look and wait.

name brand companies hate ebay becasue they cannot compeat with their prices because the ppl that sell on ebay dont pay utillities and dont pay employes. and the ppl on ebay that sell name brand stuff are ppl that have some kind of special conection thats why they are able to sell at such low prices and still make money.

buying from ebay also hurt the locl neborhood because the money does not stay in the area.

just look at the results. in the honda world there are countless about of ppl useing large ebay $150.00 intercoolers with sucess. i'm talking about 600whp+ sub 10 secound civics

i dont understand why the evo community have not broken out of the idea that they must buy over priced $700 intercoolers, $700 tbe, 300+ ic piping.

i know there have already been lots of evos that have had sucess with running the $120.00 ams copy intercooler. i also okan to get this intercooler for my evo as soon as i upgrade to a gt3076r.

fyi, i saw an issue of import tuner 2 months ago that said to watch out for fake parts on ebay. examples... tein springs, ralliart radiator caps, oil caps... some of these parts claim to be real and can have the logo on it but still be fake.
