Need a Chargecooler!

As reported in my other thread, there's a coolant breach in my Chargecooler. It was the only way that coolant could enter the intake tract, and sure enough, when I pressurized the coolant side of the CC, air bubbles appeared in the water. It never evidenced itself at idle, but at higher rpm's with boost, the issue arose.

I'm in need of a OEM chargecooler. Anybody have one laying on a shelf after upgrading to a larger, aftermarket piece? Or, there must be a Lotus salvage yard somewhere with a Chargecooled 4-cyl laying around.

Any ideas, offers or suggestions are appreciated.

Bob
