    I am getting my Vortech SQ Trim Mongoose Kit installed March 10, and am starting to save up for an intercooler. I don't want to fab one up myself. I was looking at buying the Paxton A/A off of MPH, but $1500 for a intercooler is kind of rediculous. Are there any other intercoolers you guys are running that will support my SQ trim? I dont know if this matters, but keep in mind i have a 1997 GT. Pics would be awesome too! Thanks guys!

    Search on ebay for intercooler piping... There will be all kinds of kits... 2.5" ... 3"... etc...I found a kit that is 3" piping with all the clamps/couplers and what not... also a TWELVE piece kit.. not a 8 piece kit like most... for around $100 shipped.


    I'm going to be doing a DIY / Budget FMIC set up in the next month or so..

    I'll take pictures through my process.. I'm going to spend less than $300-400....

    ya you have to mock up you own cold side piping to work with you intercooler..... alot of guys at turbomustang.com do it fairly easy if your have a good eye and good at welding
