That's considerably less than the $220 + S&H we paid Andial when we needed one for a build years ago.

Looking into rubber shroud seals to go atop the old intercoolers, too.
Weird, I bought one from Pete last year for ~$100 with a new rubber seal.

Maybe Pete was being generous. Or maybe we got poked.

Either way they don't sell them anymore and your price is very reasonable.

annnnnnnd we're all rather grateful / lucky you're offering them and reasonably (did someone really just quibble over 35clams on a cheap one-off part we're fortunate to have options for?)

I'm very in for one, once I nail down whether I stay Garretson and go with a chopped DV... or preferably... swap that all out for a used full bay longneck (ASSumes I can find one for Garretson monays)

gotta get things like the motor and stuff in first

saves my OE shroud from my Dremel's Wrath... was going to try to trim / fudge that one to werk, at some point

I would keep the Garretson. I think, for many of us, it is sufficient. On my car I have a custom billet alu "tube", which provide the necessary offset from IC to TB. I recently saw a chopped decel unit for sale here on pp. Or you could simply have someone fab up a connector like I have. It should be possible with alu tube and a tig welder.

Garretson is COOL and period correct, I think.

Hey that was not a quibble! I just thought it was odd that Chris was charged over 2x more than me for the same part from the same people!

I think it's great that he has improved and re-produced this great piece.

i have been in the process of sealing up the IC AND the engine bay. i noticed there were a lot of turbos out there when i was looking for one that were letting air slip around the IC.
there were also quite a few holes that were no longer used in my engine tin so i filled them in too. nothing worse than sucking hot air from under the engine.

i used teh old engine seal that went around the engine bay to help seal the IC

I've said it before and repeat:
The only reason TurboKraft got into manufacturing half-bay intercoolers is because Garretson's fabricator retired and isn't making them any longer.

Full respect to Garretson, their intercooler was the best bolt-on intercooler I'd tested. The longneck version was better still, huge improvement in throttle response and drivability.

They kept their core source a secret, and it took a while to find a core that was at least as efficient as theirs. They truly did their homework, in a time before easy digital datalogging, and their product worked.

I just want to be clear: I am not arguing against a bigger IC, if what you have is insufficient for the rest of the engine. For this, TK supplies some HQ units that are proven and they look awesome.

My comment on the Garretson was simply because I like the "oldschoolness." The only reason I know my Garretson IC is a good unit ( for what it is), is because you, Chris, told me. I appreciate that.

To follow up with a question: at which point does a too big IC become perceivable as reducing throttle response?

You might be able to buy this modified bypass Paul:

FS - 930 long neck pipe and modified airbox
