The RS500 intercooler starts at around £300 upwards for the 60mm core depending which brand you want to buy, but its not a straight fit by any means.
The intercooler inlet and outlets need moving, a new oil cooler and pipe work, mounts for the new intercooler, the power steering pipe work needs modifying and moving, modifying the air box. If you read more of Clogz thread you'll see what's involved.
Apart from welding the new inlet and outlet to the intercooler ( approx £60 ) I did all the work myself, so would not like the hazard a guess how much a garage would charge for this job.
Could you not just sleeve internally the intercooler outlet and hold in place which some appropriate adhesive and then replace the boost hose. Which could most probably be done in place.
