Just chiming in with some info:
I built my own IC with a welder friend back in 2000. Wish I had taken more pictures, but back in 2000, I had to borrow a shitty digital camera. Now I need find them!!!
Bought parts from RRE - Used a Griffin side-side flow core (it fits in the same place you put it and it was a little bit taller than yours) and HKS endtanks. I think the core/endtanks are still listed here: click
We welded the tab exactly where you have it, off that hood release latch (I had to trim a little bit of it off). The bottom bracket was bolted somewhere on the bottom of the frame.
The in/out piping was exactly as you have it. I only had a 16G, so just used a 2.5" to 2" reducer for the stock little pipe section to compressor housing. I think you might be able to use a 2G J-pipe, chop it and re-weld it for a slightly better flow.
I had battery relocated to rear and 2G maf/intake so the upper IC pipe was routed under the intake pipe, and took the stock routing to the IC. I was able to retain stock fogs and A/C.

Invoice literally just came through 5 minutes ago for my parts. I will be picking them up on friday and finishing up the prototype hopefully this weekend and posting pictures.

I will then be accepting payment for orders with an apprx 2-3wk lead time from the time payed. Unfortunately I have already spent a lot on parts for this project and cant afford to invest anymore until I have confirmed orders placed and payed for.

Ive got enough parts for 10 intercoolers, once I'm out I wont be doing anymore. Unfortunately I just cant make enough on these to make it worth my time.

Guys, lets get a bit of a format here for confirming what you want, Im having a hell of a time digging through all my pm's and I need to order up bov flanges and misc bungs to complete these orders.
Please Post in the following format, forgive me if you have already taken the time to pm me this information.

-Intercooler inlet pipe position, Firing up or Down? (down for down facing turbos, up for stock like setups)
-Speed Density or blow through MAF?
-If blow through Maf, Total length of maf and size of inlet and outlet? (location will be in cold side intercooler piping about 4" from throttle elbow)
-Type of BOV flange?
-IAT sensor bung? If so, what size?(standard is 3/8npt)
-Water/Meth bung? If so, what size/type?
-USDM or JDM bumper?

I cannot do anything for a Bov recirc port at this time since I a wont be doing intakes right away. That being said I am more than happy to weld on a bung to your existing intake pipe if you send it to me.

Price will fluctuate slightly depending on what options you choose for the piping. I will stick to keeping the Intercoolers at $400 for either top or bottom firing since that was the price I have been trying to target.

Piping kit is going to be more like $300 for bare bones setup and will go up for each addition option you need added. I figure a max of $400.

I hope to have the prototype kit finished this week, just need to pick up a 1g throttle body for mock up.

There is one thing I need to confirm. I will be including a 2.5" 90 degree throttle body elbow that fits on the stock throttle body, similar to what ETS was selling, is this a problem for anyone?(maybe if your running an s90 or different manifold?)



Fresh off the laser and press brake


And a new bead roller so we can have some pretty and properly rolled beads for the big boost!




If you are interested in seeing some of the other work I'm up to and what I'm capable of, you can follow me on Facebook and Instagram, just search Barber Design and Fabrication!

Hope I can get this project finished up soon for you guys!

Is there any pictures of the prototype? Is there still goals of building a custom intake?

I wonder if anyone is still interested in these...Anyways, I'm pretty much done with the first one and all the fixtures/jigs to get going on them. I apologize for how long it has taken.

I have enough parts to complete an initial run of 8 intercoolers and I only intend to do that many at first. I have only two cores in stock at the moment, I will need to order more once I have confirmed orders.

Figure a 2 week lead time on both intercoolers and piping kits. This allows me time to receive material and build them. Unfortunately at the moment I cannot stock all this material but once a few are sold ill try to get a good batch done at once.

Here is the final information about the kits.

-I wont be able to offer a blow through maf setup, just speed density piping


****Please Note**** All these parts were built around a usdm galant with usdm bumper and support. I had no access to a JDM bumper therefor I cannot guarantee fitment with a JDM bumper although I do believe it will fit with no issues. I am happy to refund shipping costs and pay for return shipping for the first person that finds out that it doesn't fit.

Intercooler
-Vibrant 12839 600hp core 24" X 8" X 3.5"
-2.5" inlet/outlet
-Requires cutting of bumper support and some trimming of bumper cover
-Clears usdm fog lights
-Works with factory A/C and Radiator
-Works with up and down firing turbos
-$400 +shipping


Piping Kit
-2.5" polished mandrel bent aluminum tubing
-All ends bead rolled
-2.5" aluminum throttle body adaptere
-Silicone couplers
-Stainless Tbolt clamps
-Fits with factory airbox
-connects to factory turbo outlet pipe
-3/8npt IAT bung
-Your choice of any BOV flange
-$380 plus shippin
-$320 plus shipping if you don't need the hot side piping, for those of you that are using bottom firing turbos.


Intercoolers and piping kits are available separately.

I have no idea on shipping costs at this moment.

I don't have all my pictures at the moment, will update this week.

Please note that you DO NOT need to cut your bumper support in half like the pictures.










Please let me know If you guys have any questions or concerns. I will be trying to respond to those of you that have previously pmed me with interest.

Looks like $400 is just for the intercooler, it would be $780 + shipping for the intercooler and plumbing if I am reading this correctly.

Correct. This is not far from the original numbers i was spit balling. Is this too much? I have some wiggle room but this stuff isn't cheap to make when we are talking about a $200+ core.
Seems like no one is interested anymore

Most board members "should" realize fabrication time and cost of materials isn't cheap. I would lean more towards the time of year than the lack of interest. For example, I would like to purchase a kit from you with a Spearco 212 Core, piping for a stock appearing turbo and non-turbo throttlebody however I just have to wait until the Holiday is over. In the meantime I didn't want to waste your time so I haven't personally engaged you.

Again, I think there is plenty of interest its just the timing that is troublesome for everybody.

Thanks for the support guys, you are right, this time of the year is not great for these types of sale. Ill wait it out, they will all sell eventually anyways.

Looks like a nice kit. Now that the ETS kit is no longer available, this is a nice alternative. I would put it up on Ebay for some more exposure and onto the Facebook pages. Sadly not enough owners visit the forum as much as the facebook page nowadays.

Planning on posting it on facebook and ebay but right Id like to get a couple more built first so they are ready to ship.

I hate the fact that Facebook is replacing forums, Forums are such a tighter community for people that are regular posters, much more of a family feel.

Still interested. Give me a month or 1,5; and I'll buy a set of you're willing to ship to the Netherlands.
