intercooler hunt

Just wanted to send a message out there for anyone potentially looking to sell there intercooler, I may be interested. I'm doing some research now and so far I am aiming for a Helix IC. Any suggestions or perfect condition IC's for 50% off (hehe) will be considered.

Grab one from the group buy Great deal. Not many used intercoolers on the market, especially the HELIX units as most are happy with them and don't sell.

Yes, I guess group buy or Brand new is the way to go.

I'm happy with the Rev1 V3 for now. The power is adequate for now and I'm sure with an IC and Stage 3 software it will make even more difference. I heard from Vishnu that there really isnt any power difference between the two Rev's only the user control of the stats/code clearing etc.. anyhow...the hunt continues. Thanks for your advice guys.

Dan....trust me! You want the Rev 2 V4. Maybe there is no much gain on HP between Rev1 V3 and Rev 2 V4, but the boost come so much faster, you will feel like a new car. You are not tracking your car so you don't really need IC unless you getting heat soak.

of couse IC is a nice addition!! IC was my last mod and it stayed in the car for less than a month before I sold it. Just wanna to get a feel how Stage 3 feel like .
The MINI is been sitting in garage for almost a month. I still have 7000 km to burn on the 335i before the lease end. So I don't think I will drive the MINI until the 335i return.
