I'm really interested in this set from SupraSport hardpipes They look really nice, cept the price tag. My question is, what kind of aftermarket intercoolers with this fit other then cartech and spearco? Anyone have these on their Supras? Thanks in advance.

if you're going to get an intercooler id get the kit. Usually the hardpipes you buy separately are made to fit with the stock setup or equivalent. If you buy a kit they will be made for the intercooler you buy.

Yea.... that's what I said.... looks really really nice... but 700 bux for fully polished pipes.... I dunno about that hahaha. Most likely, i'll just make my own, but i just wanted some feedback on them. Thanks

Ive done custom piping before for less than $100 and some time with a welder.
I would never pay that much for just pipes.

in OTHER words mandrel benders are expensive pieces of equipment!

sure they are making money on those pipes, but hey its quality and if you have the cash to splurg on them then why not? if you can find a good shop to make the same pipes for cheaper then more power to you.

$700 for hardpipes is a RIPOFF. There are many members here that have hookups on getting hardpipes made and there are also available for sale quite often in the forsale section. If you think you are going to feel a difference between using those or havinng some made that might have a weld or two then go ahead and waste your money. Get a new set for $300 and spend the other $400 elsewhere to feel the difference. just my .02.

I was thinking of those, but I would like a set up pipes that would fit my stock IC now, but would still be able to use when I upgrade my IC down the road...
