Hyperflow tmic???

What do you guys think about the hyperflow intercoolers. I know someone that has one for 425. Good deal? And what do you think about the quality of them. Thanks guys

These are great intercoolers. I ran one before I went FMIC, and it is a Hyperflow. The Hyperflow is one of the largest TMIC on the market. It will handle a lot more than the stock turbo.
The price seems high unless it is mint. Most go for around $300 on the other forums.

+1...$300 is about the price you should pay for a used TMIC. You should also consider Spearco, APS, and Perrin TMIC, as they are also good units and usually available on the forums (i.e. NASIOC).

You don't need a BOV.... just stick with the stock BPV. the sound will annoy the hell out of you after the first week.

I'm with everyone else, run the stocker until you need to upgrade.

Heh, sorry about that.. I've been calling lots of people grasshoppa lately. It's one of those random phrases that I recently heard somewhere and started using and I'm sure it will go away just as quickly. Glad it made you happy though

That is the exact reason I hate them, why would you want to attract attention to your car?

I have a Perrin BPV on my setup with a 20G. I can hear it just fine and its annoying. Even the stock BPV with a TBE and intake was annoying to me, but to each their own.
