valeo intercoolers...

Ive been kinda hunting around for a "decent" priced intercooler to replace the stock plastic sided one and came across a valeo intercooler on ebay. Its all aluminum seems alright but has anyone run one of these? Will it offer an benefit over stock as far as lowering my egts a bit? Any info would be great thanks.

I'm running one of the BPD intercoolers and while I didn't notice a drop in EGT's specifically, it seems like there is a touch more power... It could be in my head, but I think that the MTW Stage 1 just flows the air a bit easier through the BPD intercooler, which is giving me a bit more power. I haven't had the opportunity to tow with it yet, but that's the real test.

I went to their webpage... it seems like a direct replacement size wise... I know the bd, spearco,afe and banks are a bit thicker so maybe aside from being built better than stock its probabaly not going to have any flow gains.
