    This must not be good.

    I pulled my intercooler off today to do some cleaning in the engine bay and found one side of my intercooler hose leaking. By leak I mean there is small amounts of oil and dirt accumulated on the cast elbow and you can see where it has been squeezing oil vapor out of the hose. This must not be good for building boost I presume.
    Now I have a few questions for you experts, should I buy the GP MOTO silicone intercooler hose set off of EBAY since it is the cheapest, or should I buy a name brand hose set like PERRIN or SAMCO? One other question would it be worth it to buy one of those cheap EBAY intercooler kits that come with the new Y pipe and hoses instead?
