    Probably going to get Drag IC piping kit and IC to keep it easy to match with my teg. Are the IC's any good or should I go with a spearco core, or is the Drag a spearco core and I don't know about it. Thanks.

    pretty sure it is a spearco.
    quite frankly, their IC and piping is the best part of their kit.

    its going to cost you probably 1200 bucks for it though.

    the ic's go for 600-800 and piping is about 450 brand new....

    there's cheaper options...

    Yeah the DRAG kits come with Spearco intercoolers.

    They work pretty good, I had one before I bought a new intercooler.

    What other options could I go with? Would any ebay ic's work and be efficient up to 400hp?

    The guys on honda-tech like the new big johnnyracecar.com i/c's. Has anyone here had experience with them? just over $200 for what seems to be a quality i/c sounds a lot better than a drag price does.

    there was big thread here on those IC's not too long ago that quickly got out of hand.
    the general conclusion was: for the money they can't be beat. but other more expensive IC's out cool them

    So for around a 350 hp street car it should work just fine? Don't want to skimp on an important part of the system, but don't want to spend a bunch more money than i have to.

    i would never recommend it for a 350 hp car. especially a street car. especially if you live in a warm climate.

    heat soak is a bitch.

    I'd say go for it all day if you were doing a 200 hp d-series or 225 b-series, but not for 350.

    PWR get my vote.


    2078287

    20" x 7.8" x 2.87"

    720

    MSRP $450
    if you want to keep your bumper support


    20105287

    20" x 10.5" x 2.87"

    900

    MSRP $495

    if you don't. (i cut mine)

    MSRP = high. you can score it for 375-400 all day if you look hard enough.

    IMO, the 200 bucks is well spent.
