hey mate, your having some bad luck !! you been giving your little red car too much boost or what ??

I don't know of anyone "down south" but up here in Brisbane there is a Aluminium Radiators. see www.are.com.au - they do custom intercoolers and piping. Their work is top quality (but pricey) and I have spoken to them before they seem friendly enough.

I know Brisbanes a way from you but the reason I mention this company is because the owner drives a 1st gen. MX6 turbo. and he knows his trade.

I/C Piping

C'mon man, don't worry about a $700 piping kit.

Go along to any exhaust place with your car. Ask them to make up some 2 1/4 inch mandrel bent pipes for your intercooler. Won't cost more than $200.

I'll do this just as soon as the new turbo goes on...
