Default Leaky intercooler

G壇ay, the intercooler in my ZD30 Di is leaking after 180000km. I知 looking to replace it. Was just going to get a welded recore from ARE and also get their bonnet scoop then a mate was saying about the eBay intercoolers.
Has anyone had any experience with any eBay units? The ones I have seen, seem a standard size for about $100. Would these be any good ?

Thanks Tim

I can稚 speak for all of them but you get what you pay for I guess. When I converted my ZD I sold the IC to a fella who said he put an eBay job on his, that lasted all of 2 months, so he was putting a standard one back on as he couldn稚 afford a Hollywood IC. Having said that you might be lucky and get one that lasts 20 times longer, and if it痴 only $100 you haven稚 lost much either way.

Funny animals intercoolers, I've seen some doozies over my years with ZD30's. There is a lot of rubbish out there, also some brand names that are hijacked. I have also seen 'larger intercoolers' that have less tubes than their smaller cousins. Me personally, I like going for known quality, more expensive yes but you will still have it after many years and it will still be performing as good as the day you put it on if you have a good catch can system. A good IC will give you a few Hp but the main advantage is in gained torque.
