    So, I've been reading a lot. I know what I want in an intercooler, and especially the design. I am looking for cores like they show in the book I've been reading. I saw one intercooler on ebay that was almost exactly what I wanted, but it was a ton of money.

    I know that with a tig welder, or even if I paid a shop, a good unit should not cost $850. I need new core(s) to build an intercooler from.

    This is what I want, more or less. Good end cap design, and the air if properly baffled, will travel through several short lines. Better cooling and less psi drop.

    and this is what you usually see: Mediocre end cap design, and all of your air travels through just a few lines. Lesser cooling, and higher psi drop.

    I've seen a good number of companies out there that sell tons of different styles of intercooler cores in just about any size you could want. Google it up.

    I took today off from work, so I had plenty of time to search. I googled and then some. There are plenty of search results that will point you to someone that charges an arm and a leg. I even called a few places and asked to just order the cores. They said not unless I was a shop or a dealer. However, by accident, I think I found a low buck alternative. Search under Ford Thunderbird intercooler on Ebay and you'll see a core that is approx 6x11x3 in. Two or three of those side by side would be perfect! With the proper end caps and ducting, they are just right.
