The only problem that I have with GSF I/Cs is that they have too many sharp, right angles- There is no curvature in the end tanks. I bought one a while back by accident (long story) and ended up hacking off the ends and having them re-welded and used it on my Galant VR-4. The core and end tanks were OK, it cooled the charged air pretty well- But I only had a small 16G Mitsu. turbo on the car with an inlet of a whopping 1" 3/4. The inlet of my porsche's turbo will swallow the whole turbo off my Galant and it needs to have an I/C that will flow pretty big CFM. Im still in the process of talking to a local fabricator about doing the end tanks, if problems arise then I will be asking around for fab help. I really do appreciate the offers.
As for the dyno procedure on my car, I had a 9,000 CFM fan blowing right on it with the lid up. The intercooler got so hot that I burned grates into my hand when I felt it.
