overall I like my B&B half bay intercooler. A little trouble fitting it up in regards to the aluminum shrouding that seals to the wing, but good quality and only minor machining issues with the mounting bosses. Basically the tapped holes were off center of the cast bosses quite a bit, but nothing required rewelding or retapping.
I would like to see some data presented on pressure loss and thermal efficiencies of all the units out there.
Other than claims of 250% greater surface area over stock intercooler, there is not alot of hard data i have seen to compare one brand with another.
hope this helped you.
