That top engine is mine and it's a Bell core but I fab'd up the tanks at work.

I asked Bell about the lag from the larger intercooler and they said you might notice the difference if you drove two identical cars with different intercoolers, but otherwise it's insignificant.

The only drawback to the Bell cores is the weight. My intercooler weighs right at 30 lbs.

If I did a full bay again, I'd probably use a 3" core to lose some weight. Unless you really want the AC condensor in the back, I'd go full bay so it's as efficient as possible.
