Intercooler piping DIY - take a look!

I found a great piece of pipe at Summit for DIY intercooler piping..

http://store.summitracing.com/partde...part=MPE-15032

I just bought a couple smaller pieces and it was under $100 for the piping. Hitting up eBay for the couplers/clamps.

Good couplers cost ..............
You can drop $300-400 in a hurry on good couplers.

Ebay ones are kinda junky. Get what you pay for there

Thats what I'm going to try and do also, but this piece of pipe is pretty good for the price. Figured I'd let you guys know..

And the eBay t-bolts and silicone are fine, I'm not building a 1000whp car, they will hold up plenty well.

i picked up my 3" aluminum pipe kit from CXRacing on ebay. Came with some pretty nice layered couplings with t bolt clamps for like $120 shipped.

Gotten from them also. Pipes and intercooler were ok.
Couplers I found to be cheap and cut too short.

Go Vibrant and just choke down the $30-50 per coupler cost, for the win.
