Any of the intercoolers will work to one degree or another, what separates the Secan is that it can keep the temps down when it's really needed, on the track or long hard Autobahn runs. Where the ECU will have to be pulling timing to keep temps down, the Secan can keep things cool and therefore the engine giving full power. Overkill for the vast majority of us, but absolutely necessary for the 993 GT2 Evo race cars for instance.

A mate who's spent a lot of time at RS Tuning says they have half a dozen prototype coolers on the shelf that didn't make the grade, all with Secan cores. It seams that it's not just having an efficient core, there's clearly a lot more to it.
The motorsport GT2 ones are a lot different to the ones RS use on the road cars, and are the ones that change hands for massive money $30k+, i think the road ones are more reasonable, but still $16k
