    SpeedDriven M275 V12 Twin Turbo Top Mount Intercoolers - Thoughts?

    Was looking around for mods for the V12 as I think this motor will really do some special things in the next few years and I came across these intercoolers. The price is $5995 which... well, I don't understand. Why the hell are they 6 grand?

    They look nice, not necessarily the highest quality pieces and I just don't think they are worthy of the price of admission. Additionally, no dynos or any other data to support the benefit:

    The high-efficiency Speedriven intercoolers are what put Speedriven on the map. Delivering consistent horsepower and maximum cooling, Speedriven top-mounted intercoolers transform V12 Mercedes from one-run-wonders and dyno queens into dynamic, consistent sportscars.

    - GREATLY REDUCED CHARGE-AIR TEMP
    - MORE CONSISTENT POWER

    Available for all biturbo V12 Mercedes, AMG, and Maybach (2003 +) in brushed, polished (shown), or wrinkle-black coated finish.

    I have just seen diagrams of the stock ones and these are way better. But I don't understand what needs to be done for these to cost what they do?
