my guess is this will not work as the point with our intercoolers is to cool the charge from the SC, and this intercooler is pre-charge.

You could take an old mitsubishi intercooler:



And have a local rad shop weld parts around it and new endtanks.

Saw the work a kid did with one with a DSM intercooler and about $30 worth of parts and made his own. Pretty nifty.

Pre charge would do nothing unless you are piping cooled (like nearly freezing) water through it. But if it'* really cold outside, it would be warmed water...
