about your only option would be ebay or find a Crazy Steve Intercooler. They are cheap in price and hit or miss on quality.

Yes I used to rock a CX intercooler actually worked pretty good... but under high boost it heat soaked to quickly.

You can actually make your own crazy steve intercooler (aka Genuine Saab) for about 110 bucks off of ebay.

i got a cx racing FMIC and charge pipes on my 2.4 ion .. works pretty well.. only issue i've seen is when doing lots of back to back to back pulls in 4th all the way out .. i'm also on the ss/tc stock turbo which generates a good amount of heat .. when i was on the dyno the hot side piping was untouchable.. and the cold side was warm lol so it does its job

what exactly do ya mean pointing back? The ones I was looking at said it was compatible with the ss/tc but then again all universal parts say they fit cars and don't actually line up right, also heat soaked? Sorry for all the questions, still learning about turboed cars

They don't "have" to point back from the end tanks...you would just have to get some 90*s and couplers and call it a day if they weren't. Having them pre-welded pointing back just makes life easier

Sometimes its better to spend the money. Ebay one could break or im sure the fitment is horrible. could just be a waste of money.

Here's a simple rule of thumb for most eBay "universal" car parts. Can you weld? Are you willing to potentially do some fab work? If yes to those...then go for it! If not...then don't bother.

You can be like some of these wingnuts on here and call that good, but I'd rather save my money and buy ZZP:
