Has anyboy used Autobahn88 intake/ exhaust manifolds & intercoolers. They look a little bit ebayish,made in china me thinks?

The intercooler is what I'm interested in. Do you know what hp they are rated for?

I had one on my skyline GTS-T, the car held boost and made 458bhp.

Had no problems with it at all.

I have the intercooler on my 4. No problems at all really nice bit of kit for the price. Holds boost well. They recon its rated at 600 bhp but id probably run a bit less to be safe as its not a top spec name.

P.S. dont get the fitting pipes as they dont fit very well. Just as easy and cheap getting some made for the fit.:smthumbup

yes like butchering (read-modifying) my front bumper mounts to fit mine! lol
Nice tidy job though and well worth the effort.

It's chinese mark but not china junk. Little better quality than what you would except from average china products.

I would say good quality. Once had Greddy and Autobahn88 FMIC kits side by side and didn't see any difference than just labels.

Ive had an autobahn intercooler before now.... very well made IMO and the pipe work fitted spot on. Good value for money id say!!

i had the autobahn88 front mount kit on my old s14, cooler it's self was fine, no problem's at all, but you could see that money had been saved on the fitting kit, pipework was a bit thin and hose clip's where pretty much useless, i'd recomend the kit but order some proper hose clip's at the same time :smthumbup

Anyone have any experience with the manifold? I would like one for my V5 but am concerned about build quality. From memory they offer a 7 day warranty which doesn't inspire confidence.

My thoughts exactly, apart from the pipework comment :confused: had one fitted to my S13 :smthumbup

Scud, Ian with a silver classic, chris' mate just put one on I'll have a closer look on the weekend. I can't just ignore these they're half price of the Perrin/AMS/APS etc. Just had price back from the states on a perrin 620 only a bit cheaper than over here.. crappy $/

Sweet cheers mate.

Also does anyone no the difference between the one on unit 8s website and the one on the autobahn website?

To me they look to be the same intercooler but with a 200 difference?

Mine is due to be delivered at any moment. I searched around and went direct. Takes a couple of weeks but at 368 inclusive for Cooler and pipe kit i can wait a couple of weeks no problem :naughty: :thumbup:

I 'll hopefully be running nearer to 500 with it fitted. :cool:
