Exclamation Which FMIC is the best bang for your buck??

I am needing to purchase a FMIC with NO piping, just the core. I installed the piping a while ago and the FMIC that I purchased to go with it did not fit even though i was told that it would I have found that it is hard to buy a FMIC without the piping kit to go with it.

So now i am here to ask all of you... Which company sells the best intercooler for your money? My upgrades are in the SIG.

What pipes you have?

I suggest you get FMIC with pipes. Some pipe will not work with any core.
Ohnoo dual core is bang for the buck. Go check Pampena's website.

Depends on what your best bang for the buck means. If you want a cheap core but may have possible surging issues than go with any cheap PMP kit you see which are all just a chinese core.

If you want quality go with ETS.

This. Best cores for the price, hands down.

I thought Pampena sold a new dual core cxracing kit, rather than oohnoo's?

Interesing that the treadstone intercoolers have divided end tanks, I wonder how much of a difference that would make...

IIRC Jeremy picked up ~30AWHP going from a typical Greddy 24x12x3 core to the TR1245 core.

Do you know if he experienced any change in spool due to the 4.5" thick core?
