intercooler piping

well i just picked up a 6.0 intercooler for $50 and was thinking i would make my own pipes. so what have some of u guys used to build ur piping? exhaust pipe? universal kit? iifc a guy was talking about pvc?

also i remember reading in a thread a while back but now i cant find it someone was talkin about moving the map line to eliminate turbo lag when installed thier intercooler. anyone know where this is?

i got it off ebay. i bought one for 100 bucks a few months ago. then sold it for 150

i dont plan to half ** it at all. just cuz im building them myself doesnt mean im gonna half** it. it just means i dont have a couple hundred bucks laying around to waste on intercooler pipes.

pvc cracks very easily and I doubt will stand up to the temps and stress of IC duty. And I'll bet money you'll never be able to get a good enough seal on it to hold 30+ psi of boost. PVC cracks just trying to clamp a clamp on it to hold the 6637 filters on, and from the heat/cold underhood.. I cant fathom using it for an IC.
