Dont write off the power of latent heat of vaporisation of water I think you get a better cooling effect from WMI than a intercooler both in combo is better I will do some testing when I get WMI install and the charge temp gauge and I found a place that has intercoolers similar to mine in various sizes for 3-400 dollars the prices you see are the porsche markup on these parts.

I am surprised that it actually would decrease temps that close to an intercooler. I wonder how much cooler than say a stock intercooler? Also does the benefit of no pressure loss through the cooler make it even more effective? The only shortfall is filing up but then with say a 2 gallon tank it would be near a tank of gas with a electronic mgt.


Why is everybody paying $2500-$3000 for intercoolers??
