I'm quite sure there are plenty of list members and AW members that have their stock intercooler laying around that they'd sell for a trivial amount.  Installation is easy too.

I'm a dentist, I know about sticking things in holes and getting them to stay.  Unless it's just a crack or up in a corner where you can gain some retention against more than one surface, JB Weld isn't going to hold.
