I just got the Mishimoto with pipes on sale for $700. I’m loving it so far. It’s so much larger and more solidly built. No plastic. All metal pipes and IC with silicone couplers. The pipes were a PITA to install, but the IC itself was a snap. I also added the Turbosmart Supersonic BOV. That took some engineering to install on the Mishimoto, but eventually I got it on.
The only negative I see at this point is no drains for condensate.

Sorry to hijack here, but is it advised to put a petcock or drill a hole on this unit too?

Mishimoto has a drain plug on the 2011-14 intercooler. Not sure on their 2015+ intercooler.. Its in one of the lower mounting legs.

i havent had any accumulation issues. I did drill a 1/32" hole in the drain plug for the intercooler so its always purging slightly though.
probably going to do this too, assuming you drilled it drivers side (cold side) of the intercooler in the little threaded Alan key plug that I had to put in? Does it still drain/accumulate as much as the stock one did cause that thing was messy haha

And then customs on top of it in most cases.
