Crazy cost of intercoolers!! Why not....

Why is it that you can get intercoolers (bar and plate) for Civic's, Acura's, Ford's, etc..) for under $ 400.00 all day on e-bay but when you start talking ones for our cars, they are averaging over $1000.00. This is for the same sized core and I know there is the "Porsche tax" but this is crazy.
I am thinking about either buying one that is designed for an Acura and modifying the end tanks or just buying a core and end tanks and building one. While I can't weld aluminum, I have a friend that is very capable and willing.
Has anyone tried this? What do you think?
