Bigger intercoolers are free horsepower as all have indicated, but it is very difficult if not impossible to put a number to that increase. WAY too many variables such as heat soak, ambient temperature, other modifications, etc, etc. On a 70 day we would see ~15whp increase from our 1/2 bay init on a stock 255whp engine for one pull with no fan blowing on it. In the winter that number doubles. HUGE difference when the ambient temperature is low.
