I haven't driven and dyno tested a 911 Turbo yet that *doesn't* gain from a larger, more efficient intercooler.
Less back pressure, more efficient cooling -- all good.

Trying to think of a client car where we did a back to back on just an intercooler, and when I remember and find it, I'll post it.

I do recall a back-to-back on a friend's EFI 3.4L 930 running just 1.1bar on pump gas, going from a Garretson IC (which kicks @ss) to our full-width sheetmetal intercooler.
It's a gain everywhere: spool up, torque, power, and you feel this driving the car:



And this is with less airflow on the dyno than the engine receives shooting down the highway, so actual results are a little better.
