Good luck, I tried for a long time. Ruf no longer makes them, in fact they are buying them back for historical reasons whatever that means...

Just wanted to say I love mine and yes there is some better full bay coolers but for a simple upgrade I am very very happy.

Ruf, Kolken, and Andial are all extremely hard to find.
Anybody looking I would suggest turbokraft, FS or BB, they still
make both the long and short neck coolers in any finish you want.

Kokelns can be bought new, used Andials appear on here regularly but RUF's are rare, very rare!
Do a search as Falk930 was interested in selling his RUF way back.
I 'was' interested, but I was bidding up against 'RUF' themselves and my pockets are not quite that deep

FYI I do love my RUF but now to do it again I would buy a new one from Turbokraft. As good as the old ones are a nice new one is the way to go. That way you have no problems with damaged fins etc.

Kokeln does not make or sell intercoolers for the 930 anymore and according to them never will again. They are good intercoolers if you find one but they have thick cast aluminum end tanks that are heavy.

Along with others mentioned Fabspeed also makes and sells a 930 halfbay intercooler with lightweight handmade end tanks with an install kit.

Bel intercoolers will custom make one for you to your specs for a reasonable price. Some of the others makes use Bel cores.

FYI, Andial no longer makes them either, I actually own the last one they ever made.
The BB short neck is a very good, economical option for those not wanting to do a long neck conversion. The FS is basically the modern version of the kolkeln, very nice. The TK appears to be the andial/garretson.2, also a very nice IC.
