So today a large piece of debris (still not sure what) completely smashed my intercooler and left a huge dent because I thought it would be more cosmetically appealing to remove the center lower grill <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> . It still seems to be functioning but I was wondering if any of you guys with aftermarket IC's would be willing to sell me your old one, as this one is my fault and can't/won't be covered. I figured I'd ask before I spent $700 on an upgrade or a new OEM FMIC. Thanks.

Re: Looking for OEM FMIC. (Revolve40)

I was always worried about that happening, i also have my lower grille also removed <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0"> Idk if spending $350 pornstar wants for the oem intercooler is worth it tho, if u can swing the 700 for an aftermarket intercooler it makes a good increase in performance. If not pornstar has had that intercooler for sale for awhile and u can probably talk him down in price <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">
