All the boost piping has rubber couplings and the intercooler has rubber mounts so there should be minimal vibrations to the intercooler.

Good, I've seen intercoolers craking because of all that metal on the pipping, which gives no absorption of the engine at all. Some rubber hoses help a lot.

Anyone besides me ever used the sewer connectors from lowes/home depot as connectors for intercooler piping?

Nothing says southern built like 200 bucks worth of stainless mandrel bends and sewer pipe connectors.

I have, it sort of works. The issue is that it can't take the sustained heat. So the cold side of the intercooler it's never been an issue, the hot side, close to the turbo, it will distort and eventually fail.

It's great to use for a mock-up and run with it for a bit, but expect to remove it and replace with metal pipe after you are happy with the routing.
