Helix Intercooler

First I almost bought turkish335's. Then I changed my mind and wanted coilovers. Then I bought soni's intercooler. Now I've decided that I want coilovers.

Helix intercooler, practically brand new. Soni had it on for like a week!

I haven't installed it yet (surprise surprise!).

$750 firm. GTA only.

P.S. I reserve the right to continue waffling. Even if I sell this, I am still short of mod money for H&R's!

Turkish, do you have a sedan or coupe? Just wondering if trimming plastic is involved.

Feel some extra punch?

some do need trimming and some don't. You can't tell until you put them up at the slot. If trimming plastic is require, it is minimal....the trimmed part will eventually covered / blocked by the OEM/aftermarket intercooler after installed. Not easy to spot.

I was told there is a small amount of trimming but I did not install it (charlie did).

There was a marked improvement in performance post install

Damn you! Now I'm curious to see what it can do... Probably going in to see Charlie next week to install this (assuming I don't sell it) and the UUC sways.

Thanks for the bump.

I think I have a buyer already. Just don't know about the coilovers... Once you factor in install, I'm probably looking at the ballpark of Cdn$2K for KW v1 or H&R...

Foooook...

I still think you should keep the FMIC over the coilover
