    I believe they are, but it'll still be some time for that one. Last I heard it was still in the development stage. I can't wait to see it though! And GReddy still haven't released theirs either..

    @[email protected] is in fact working on an intercooler as we speak. He is detailing the development on his blog

    The 27won IC looks just about identical to the Mishimoto. They are adding a TAB FIN on the hot side to apparently better direct airflow in. That is the only difference. They are also designing Charge Pipe/Tubing as well that will be "flexible"; as they don't expect everyone to have a RMM.
    For the CVT owners, the Mishimoto IC and the PRL Charge Pipe Hose Upgrade Kit would be the best bang for the $ - since we're not changing the size of the turbo anytime soon :)

    Yea I'm gunna wait to see what the price difference is going to be, Looking at all of these products it appears these companies are reliable but I like what I see from 27won

    I was a bit curious as well, however after kytos brought to light that Mishimoto also has the "Fin" integrated into the hot side - then, PRL already has an upgraded Hose Kit that is 3ply better than stock.
    I do understand your hesitation in the pricing, but they will all be in the same ballpark of $800-920 for the full kit.
    Looking at the R&D of their graphs, the difference is the temp of the Inlet Temp over a long duration of time; but Outlet Temp remained the same. Larger piping only really required for the M/T ladies & gents that are aiming at bigger turbos.

    the mishi at $920 is a sale price. Ive read that was intro pricing and will go to 1150. The PRL IC now comes with a bug predrilled for meth injection as well
