^ agree with pot would like to see a sd intake. I may have to relocate my battery soon too. I have a ets intake sitting waiting but will have to see.

Quoting Pot:

I called ETS last week to hear it from the horse' proverbial mouth to confirm a few things. One, they no longer offer the piping kit to go w/ their galant vr4 specific core. Two, they disposed of their jig and/or didn't make one. Three, not even a group buy will resurrect their piping kit. Therefore you can 100% count me in. If you rip off their design or improve upon it that'd be for the better.

If you'd like a deposit please let me know. I'm looking for a piping kit to match my EVO III 16g and clear my factory A/C. I would also look to you for an intake tube but I'll hold squat on that until I transition to Speed Density. In the interim I'd like my piping to clear a possible intake fabricated by yourself.

In addition, I would preferably like to use a 2-216 Spearco Core in lieu of any other core/brand. Please let me know if this is a reality. This message may have been better relegated to a Personal Message however I wanted to share my experiences and thoughts on this matter with the other gents on here. Please advise




Good info!

Are you thinking a something similar to Mark's setup on 1051? According to him, his setup allows clearance for both usdm and jdm bumpers, a/c and fogs.

I'm happy to use any core anyone chooses. I would like to try and keep sizes similar so that my end tank designs and piping don't change but I'm OK with small adjustments.

Ben Hayes has kindly agreed to bring me his Galant for mock up. I will be building around a stock usdm front end, with stock size radiator and a/c. I will have several different turbo setups I can build different pipe kits for including bottom mount holsets, stock td05 turbos, and other t3 bottom mount setups. We plan to have the car here towards the end of the week for me to start on this project.

Thank you for all your patience, I know there are several of you that are really chomping at the bit. I am a one man band with many other customer projects going on right now along with working a full time job (hope to make the transition away from that sooner than later and focus on this stuff). I hope to complete the current job by the end of the week and be able to dedicate 100% to this.

Got end tank parts today finally! I plan on getting the core all welded up tonight and then I can start pipe routing and figure out how to clear fogs.

Sorry for the slow progress, I have literally been waiting for these laser cut parts for over 2 weeks and before that just struggling to get caught up!

This prototype will be built around a vibrant 24"x8"x3.5" core. I plan to build most of the intercoolers with this core. I am happy to use any other core(of better quality)if the buyer pays the difference and only if the exact same dimensions are available. Still open for discussion on the whole project but lets wait until I have a finished setup with some pictures!

Awesome man, glad to see you're still at it. Are you only making kits for mitsu style compressor outlets or are you planning anything for downfiring turbos?

I plan to offer a core that has an inlet orientated for a top and bottom firing turbo, I might be able to make them the same if the piping takes it into account.

Slim to none considering you have to contact them for a shipping quote to anywhere outside of Australia.

With Mdlimy putting in the work for the community trying to make a kit around $450, spending over a grand + shipping from Australia seems nuts.

Still plugging away. Intercooler is done. Hot side piping is just about done. Just realized I need flanges for the throttle body, will draw it up and have them water jet cut. Thanks for being patient guys, I have been extremely busy, and only getting more busy everyday!

No you don't need to cut the bumper support in half, just remove enough to fit the intercooler. I couldn't be bothered, so I cut it in half with the chop saw
This kit will clear fogs, I have no way of telling weather it will clear jdm bumpers, can any one think of an easy way to tell rather than mocking up a jdm bumper?

I'm interested in a kit for AC with a downfiring turbo. FP Red. I have a custom kit but would be looking to replace it of the price is right.

Keeping pricing as low as I originally wanted is not going to be possible. With the core costing $204 it means I need to sell the complete intercooler for at least $400 before shipping to make any money.

On top of that, the piping kit is needed. The cost of tubing, bov flanges, custom cut throttle flanges, etc ends up being more than I anticipated and at $300 bucks I'm barely clearing my time.

The last biggest hurdle is the hot side piping. I simply do not have the means or time to mock up piping on different types of turbos. But I can offer an intercooler with two different inlets for both top and bottom firing turbos. I could include a generic peice of piping to get you over to the turbo, but a little work would be required here. I am open to suggestions.

Cold side piping will be direct fit, and will clear fog lights, stock air filter and stock location and size battery. It will include a new throttle body flange similar to the ets kit.

With that being said, who is still interested at those prices? I will only being doing a small run of them, only for people here on the forum, once I have fulfilled those orders I most likely wont be making any more for a while. At least not until I get settled into a new shop.

If you 100% want one please let me know the following

-Top or bottom firing turbo
-which blow off valve?
-does your bov recirc?(if so, what size is the od of the port and how far from the bov center is it)
-Iat port or other weld in threaded bung?
-blow through maf?( i will leave a section out for you to install the maf inline with couplers)

So, the total amount is going to be around 700-ish? Or is there any other big amount coming on top of that? If we are talking about 700-800 bucks; I'm interested.


If it would be a lot more I would be interested as well; just wouldn't have the cash on hand at the moment

I'm interested in the intercooler and 16g outlet to intercooler parts. Previous owner welded a battery tray back near the firewall that will probably interfere with your piping on that side.

I am waiting on parts to be laser cut and formed at the moment, still several weeks out, but definitely making good progress and on the road to getting this done!



Quoting Munky:

I would be interested in just a Intercooler if possible.




Yes, just the intercooler will be available, just choose whether you will be using a top or bottom firing turbo.

Quoting LT1UltraZ:

put me down for one

stock BOV (recirculate)
thread bung for meth nozzle.
68HTA turbo
EVO MAS.




Send me a PM so we can figure out maf size and location for bov and wm nozzle.


Quoting galantgti:

So, the total amount is going to be around 700-ish? Or is there any other big amount coming on top of that? If we are talking about 700-800 bucks; I'm interested.


If it would be a lot more I would be interested as well; just wouldn't have the cash on hand at the moment




The last prices I mentioned should be pretty close for the core, the pricing may change a bit for the piping depending on a few things, i'm doing my best to keep cost down so I can pass that on to everyone.


Quoting 4g6Tree:

I'm interested in the intercooler and 16g outlet to intercooler parts. Previous owner welded a battery tray back near the firewall that will probably interfere with your piping on that side.




Send me a picture and I can tell you if it will be an issue, the elbow coming off the throttle body will be very similar to the ETS elbow.

LOOKS GREAT! Definitely interested in I/C by itself

-For top firing turbo (stock now, upgrade to HTA68 or FP Green later on)

Pipes I'd want would be for stock BOV and Evo Maf (but I'll probably do the pipes myself)
