I was thinking of building my own turbo kit in the next year or so. I have thought about with and without an intercooler. I've come to the conclusion that I should stick with an intercooler because I may end up going bigger later and it would just save money in the long run. I've already sourced a manifold, turbo, intercooler, oil lines, reflash/tune, etc all the little parts. However I am not a welder. I know a few people who can weld, not well, but can weld. I wouldn't really trust them so bringing it to a metal/exhaust shop is my plan.
Sorry for the long post, but here's the question: about how much would it cost to have the pipes cut and bent for both the intercooler and the turbo itself?
