So if those folks with taller aftermarket intercoolers have not built a shroud they are loosing a lot of efficiency. I'd venture to say a properly shrouded stock intercooler might even perform better than a larger unshrouded intercooler. That is what I intend to find out by recording the outlet temperatures.
What does the shroud look like? I'm currently shroudless.
