    dont quote me, but on my boosted d series board some people were saying great things about the volvo smic.

    i heard another rumor that the dsm's dont flow worth a shit.

    anyone?

    the starion ones flow like poop. the mx-6/probe ones are great. mod on here (ji) used one on his setup and ran 9psi just fine. (i think it was 9)

    Starion ICs suck. I had the MX-6 turbo IC on my setup. I was running 10, but who's counting. I have a Mercury Cougar XR-7 intercooler in my posession (the supercharged 3.8L option above), and I can tell ya, this thing would kick MAJOR ass in any setup. It's big, and I haven't done any manometer tests with it yet, but it has more internal cross sectional area than a 2.25" pipe...

    OK i see the ford owns the intercooler race. but i was also thinking about the new neon SRT-4 intercooler. A friend and i went to the dodge dealer and looked for a manifold for his eclipse and it came out to $700 for the manifol and the turbo. I think thats cheap. so the intercooler which is FM would be like $300-400 with pipes. im going down tomorrow to find out.
