fair price for intercooler

I am going to list this over in the FS section. What is a fair asking price?

It came with a turbo setup I acquired in 2016. It is a full bay, and was used to mount to a modified factory 3.2 AFM unit.

The core measures approx. 29x14x2.75" with a inlet OD of approx. 2.5"

Its amazing how prices fall as the fab work on that IC is easily $2,500...

Full bay...$1200. Start there, anyway.
But, at only 2.75" thick I wonder if it may have the same overall heat removing surface area of something 6"deep but only half bay...which might go for up to $700 (thinking of the B&B I have on mine).

From my understanding, anything over 3Ē thick doesnít result in that much extra efficiency. Better flow can be achieved, but less heat dissipation apparently.

I bought a used Blown6 full bay unit about that size years ago for $900 and thought it was a good buy. I would start north of $1000.

That IC is for a niche market. It will require a good bit of additional fab work as its set-up to be used with the 3.2 air-flow meter.. which will require considerable tuning to the Motronic DME. Also, low boost application considering the standard 3.2 compression ratio.

I think at $5 -$700 it will move.. anything above that and its gonna stick around awhile. Just my opinion.
