Well, I'm not proud of it, but I took the plunge on the eBay intercooler, figured $115 shipped to my door on Black Friday was worth taking a gamble on. Both Mustang and Focus guys have A/B'd them with the $600+ Mishi one and have found them to be identical in not only size and design, but materials and cooling performance. I hope to have similar results, but, if it sucks big time, I'm only out $115 and have plenty of reputable options from vendors here. As it stands I'm going to grab some of the Whoosh boost hoses and a few more odds and ends before I install it, but I'll keep folks posted.

Wait, how the hell did you get it for $115? I thought it was $168 and was $143 if you got in on the 15% off day, which you said you missed out on, lol...

Tried to use the coupon anyway because #yolo and it worked + had a couple bucks in my paypal account from a sale earlier in the week, so the net out of my bank account was right around $115 and change.

AH! Still, $143 actual cost is insanely good on such an actually decent unit, hoping the prices drop on them again, right now $200 for black is the cheapest...

I finally installed the eBay FMIC this weekend. Fitment was absolutely flawless. I have not noticed any hesitation at throttle or increased turbo lag as some folks have reported with larger front mounts, and charge temps are rarely more than a couple degrees above ambient at WOT. Cools off very quickly after sitting, too. I'm really impressed.

Got a link for that bad boy maybe? I'm in for ~$150 as a "why not" upgrade.
