We have seen many instances where owners will go bigger eBay IC (R53's and R56's) and ended up losing HP due to the poor efficiency of the core... it works both ways...

Just read on the "comprehensive intercooler" thread that many have bought eBay intercoolers without issue. Are there people on this aite that have had issues? Where did you hear about these problems? Thanks!
