Intercooler opinions

Looking to purchase either Fabspeed or Turbocraft long neck intercooler. They look very similar. Any opinions on which one is better.

Thanks

If open to either, I'd reach out to TK and go with his recommendation due to his constant support on this forum.....

Vote for Kokeln here as those are going at very reasonable prices these days from recent posts. TK otherwise will be a phenomenal choice.

I have run Turbokraft intercoolers on my last few builds.
Extremely happy with them. T

Chris is a Pelican member who is always willing to help those on the board, lucky if you can get any useful information of any kind out of the other vendor. For those reasons alone I would go with TK.

If I were going with a turn key intercooler option, and I had the $. I would go with Turbokraft. High quality stuff.

Another vote for the TurboKraft, long neck. Chris just hooked this one up. Rips, and responsive. The anodized black option = king's crown.

Both are similar form of the fabricated predecessor, Fred Garretson. I personally like the black, oe appearance and the TIG works of the TK vs the FS kit with the red hoses. Plus TK fabricated here in PHX, Arizona USA.

For the cast aluminium, Kokeln long neck, B&B standard or they can make a full bay 965 style or 965 cut short.. expect these BB to need some fitment updates.

TurboKraft mocked up a mule motor to build my IC to perfect fitment to my SC 3.2SS
Did I say it fit perfect ? Of course it did....
