Default Intercooler?

Hi.
I was thinking about to chance my pipes and my inter cooler this winter, but the search for model specific inter coolers for PT Gt's come up empty.

Why I want a bigger and more efficient inter cooler is that I'm planning to go for a big turbo kit in the future, and I'm noticing a heat soak in the pulls already with the stock turbo.

Anyone got any ideas

I'm just going to buy a generic intercooler and piping kit online somewhere and fab it all to work.

How did you determine this?

Most "larger" IC offered are not much better than the stock which BTW is very efficient.

Are you planning to "track" or spend a lot of time on a chassis DYNO and are worried about long term IAC's?

Unless you are going for the looks you may be wasting your money! If it is under 500 than more than likely it is a low quality core and somebody welded their ends on it.

The better core alone the size of a stock IC are around 300-600. And than you need to have ends welded for piping.

Don't be fooled by advertising claims and unsubstantiated forums reports about aftermarket inter coolers and their performance. PT Cruisers were never on any aftermarket IC manufacture mind to R&D anything worthwhile for them.

People have rigged up a water spray (as in using a windshield sprayer) onto the intercooler to lower the temp.
Cheaper and easier and effective.

conscience..but I think you knew that. Good thing you "never" comment on other grammar,spelling ,sentence structure,etc.,.. no one would like you. And I don't mean the "like" a response either.

DON!
You got a "Like" from Nitro???

By the way..some forums do have grammar police. If we did, Nitro is dead!
But, all us are using dying fingers as we age.
