Less heat? Probably more.

But realistically, it totally depends on what he ultimately plans to do with the car. Street bursts are normally not going to dictate a larger intercooler.

Tell you what: Next sunny day (ha, won't be for about a week it looks like) I'll run a test.
Video camera on the IC outlet gauge in my car. Will show the outlet temperature along with the rise in temperature when I do a full boost romp. Max fuel, max power - all 438 RWHP in action.
From 20-30 up to perhaps 80 or 90 mph. And probably more power - and heat generated - than Rob's car, to be honest.

The RUF IC in my car *is* larger than stock - however, the boost is .9 bar, and everything on the car is totally optimized for power.
So the heat levels will be just about maxed out vs. Robert's car - thus the valid comparison. And yet another reason Rob needs to check and test his fuel - and ignition system before he bolts on all the stuff. Not doing so can mean some serious destructive potential.

You will be surprised at the heat rise - it isn't all that much.
You just simply cannot run the car that hard on the street to get the IC in the 'too hot' range.

Now.....if you do runs in 90-100 degrees, up a very long grade, running crap gas....lack of fuel......ignition timing f'd up......another story.

Depends on what Robert wants to do with his car.
Rober, if your car will ever see a track day and you have a K27 turbocharger. headers, all systems A1 - you had better have a larger IC there in California.
