Anyone purchase the intercooler from VIVA ? If so does it come with the install hoses(kit)? or do I have to purchase separate? Can't get response from George!

It is just a core, you will need to source the piping on your own.<p>EDIT:<br>George is out of town right now, thus his delayed response. The core is made by Yonaka.

If you have the time and equipment, you could save a lot of money fabricating the pipes yourself. There is a reason the piping and/or kits cost so much though...they aren't easy to make!<p>I was going to make an attempt at it while over in Germany when I had access to a full shop and lift, but moving came too quickly and I just let it go.

Mike, as others have said, make sure the pipes are done right. There are times you spend the cash to make sure things do not go wrong, and especially when dealing with this kind of mod, you want to make sure all the components are well built. <p>in any event, good luck. also make sure the people you have install it know what they are doing.

It's definitely worth it if you can have Matt install it. The time/$/frustration you'd save is worth it...<p>OR<p>take a drive down to the boys next to Shea Stadium and have them make you something out of recycled soda cans <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (97GLTbrick)

Mike you could always use PVC piping for the IC, would look ghetto as f*** but it's the cheapest way, and it will still function like any other piping
