Default Found a CX racing intercooler...

So I stumbled across this on Ebay while wasting time looking at car parts until my damn motor is done being assembled.

Edit: posted the wrong link...

The pictures it shows are when its mounted on an SRT-4, from my visual inspections (and memory) the PT and SRT-4 intercoolers are a very similar design with only the cold side pipe being different. With the extra pipes this comes with it appears to be a near direct fit. The hot side pipe would match up no problem, I've confirmed that design is near enough exact that any difference between the PT and SRT can be compensated for by angling the pipe a slightly (if at all) different direction with the coupler, and the cold side intercooler pipe it comes with seems like it is almost close enough to attach directly onto the existing intercooler pipe with only slight (again, if at all) modification.

It appears you may have to remove the crash bar, if that is the case I'd have my friend help me weld up a custom one, or just leave it off, whatever.

What do you guys think? I don't know for sure if the intercooler dimensions between the SRT and PT are the same but I think they are, I'll do some more digging to see. It'd be nice if this was a near direct bolt on for our cars.

Plus it comes with a BOV flange welded on the cold side!

Your ebay takes us to mounts.
Why do you need a different IC? Is yours damaged?

Ah crap, thanks for the catch, I just edited it. No its not damaged, but I got bored and started looking at possibilities for aftermarket intercooler options. I know the stock one is pretty efficient and I really wouldn't need a change until I went big turbo but I got bored and started looking at parts. Anything to avoid studying for finals...

Was also checking out some intercooler sprayers as an upgrade once the new motor goes in.

More curious now to see if it actually fits, might just buy it to see lol

Plus, BOV flange, I want to get rid of the ricer plate and change it up. If nothing else I'm changing my cold side piping to accept an afermarket BOV of some sort.
