If I sold these, it'd only be because I wanted the names and addresses of the people who bought them so I could hunt them. I mean, really... It's one thing to try to be individual and end up being ricey (but that's your thing, have fun, whatever). But this is so beyond assanine that they should be made to be immensely toxic so those that actually buy them and touch them will end up with some weird cancer and die... jeez....

No Way!

I guess a "regular" rice-boy will just stick in the front bumper opening, but imagine the hard-core rice-boy who will actually go through the trouble of installing a hood-scoop in order to install a fake intercooler...

assanine = asinine, isn't that called irony?

LOL, sorry.. I couldn't leave it alone...

Oh yeah.. that plastic intercooler is about as useful as stickers for products you don't have... probally adds 30hp to the butt dyno.. right?

Im glad Honda owners are doing their part to help clean up the environment and put to good use recycled plastic.

FYI: Plastic intercoolers are the lastest in technological advancements. But be warned... heavy mods like this should be used in conjunction with some sort of fuel management system and/or a "R-type"sticker.

Marquis, I totally agree. That's the way I feel about drugs... ie. alcohol, tobacco, cannabis, etc.

I think so that it accompanies their many stickers.... YOu know with all those performance stickers, they gotta have a faux intercooler to instill fear on the old lady in her Caddy right?!

What's next? Racing wings/spoilers? Oops....they've already got that!

okay Pinochle, what do you mean? i can see alcohol, but not marijuana. alcohol, is the cause of more deaths, and physical and mental problems than anything. marijuana is a natural product from the earth, not man made. alcohol is also a depressant, and i cannot understand why it is legal and marijuana is not. i think it should be the opposite way around, alcohol is the product that should be illegal and not marijuana which is natures anti-depressant. i have a friend that has been on Prozac, Zolaf, and many other anti-depressant drugs over the past 3 years and they did not help her one bit. she didn't like taking all those man made drugs, so her doctor actually told her to try marijuana and now that she has she feels and looks so much better and actually has taken her life back.

Marijuana is also a depressant and alcohol is also a natural product of the earth.

I think they should both be legal, but that's just my opinion.

oh damn, here we go again with the "hippie crap."

Neither Alcohol nor Marijuana are healthy for the human body. Alcohol destroys your liver, and can cause cancer. Marijuana destroys your brain, and causes memory loss. I'VE SEEN THEM BOTH IN ACTION. Don't try to pull some doctor study out your ass either, I've seen study's saying things we eat everyday cause cancer, only to be proven wrong by a REAL doctor.

Also, enough with this nautral product of the earth crap, EVERYTHING IS NATURAL. It all comes from the earth in one way or another. Saying a synth oil isn't "natural" is like calling a home cooked meal unnatural. They're both just a combination of ingredients to make a final product.

If you want to kill brain cells, or swell your liver, fine, I don't care. Just don't go preaching your crap on me.

Personally? I don't care if it's legal or not, people are gonna do it anyway, no matter what happens. You want me to name the positives I've seen from hi/drunk people? NONE, not ONE DAMN THING, nothing good EVER came from someone I know who was either drunk, or hi.

Well, the only use I could see for this is if you were doing a project and wanted something to reference as to where you'd locate an intercooler, say if you had to cut your front bumper for it.

BTW, how much are they?

Well! I see everyone else found the "intercooler" as stupid as I did.

They don't have a twin turbo version, but since you would just be lying your ass off anyway, I'm sure you could just say you have a single turbo.
