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.

Big Deal and two months later i bet the motor blew cos it made it unbalanced and unreliable

Show one thats been there for 200000 plus kays ONLY then you can say its as good as or better than factory !
