A front mount intercooler is easy to get on ebay, its the same item used on the Nissan 300zx, piping however will be the issue, people charge crazy amounts for the piping needed. You will get the few that suggest making up piping from universal kits but as far as i can see the multiple silicon joins required look like a recipe for failure on a car that already can be riddled with boost leaks.

The ebay cores are not good, they don't cool very well at all.

Theres a couple of versions of them. Decent ones have proper brazed cores, but the others have glued cores which is clearly useless.

Unfortunately its very hard to figure out what your getting before it arrives. Theres some pics floating around showing the difference between them so you can check it once it comes.

pain in the ass ! popped down to forge motorsport as there are only down the road from me , they said they dont make them and they wont because there isnt a big market for the s4s, cost to much to make one, can only find kits in usa but it will cost a fortune for import tax etc !
