    Which Intercooler

    Trying to get a sense of which intercooler to purchase. From what I can understand (and this could be wrong), the Full Blown intercooler is a little bitter (and a little cheaper) than the ETS intercooler.

    Is there any particular factor you should look at when deciding between the 2?

    I'll most likely go with ETS when the time comes. I've heard really good things about their products. That doesn't mean the other options are bad, though.

    Better how? Bigger? Less pressure drop? Better is awfully subjective IMHO

    I did a fair amount of homework and opted for ETS. The Mountune unit was equally as nice, but didn't justify the extra cost IMO and I like how I could order the ETS Intercooler without a logo but still anodized for longevity.

    i have the full blown and love it. cast end tanks are nice, fitment was perfect and it's about 1mm smaller in every dimension than it could possibly be .

    Just wondered if anyone has a Wagner Tuning Ford Focus RS MK3 Competition Intercooler Kit?
    Looks very similar to Mountune with specs including being Tube and Fin. The inlet / outlet connectors are bigger at 70mm.

    I was wondering the same... or what about the Mishimoto? (cool story I learned on these guys... did you know they are US based company and came out in the early F&F days and just thought up a name that sounded cool at the time? ..that's the cliff notes version. They may chime in and correct a bit but that's the gist of it)

    Here's a link to the Wager US page.
