But there are twice as many so doesn't that make up for it? Whilst also allowing for twice the cooling potential? Is there a way to test how restrictive it is, hook it up to a leaf blower of something

True, true but the garretson channels are about twice as high..

If the airchannels in the full-bay had been somewhere near as wide as the Garretson it would have been a different story. The full-bay does have a bigger frontal area and due to this less restriction for the ambient air going trough it.

But for now my money is on the Garretson for sure..

pkracer: That is my friends Gallardo-Super Leggera, and to tell the tale.
I held him off for 2 laps, then was instructed to let him pass. My friend did mention how impressed he was with the 930's power on the straight. He said, he was trying to pull on me but was having a hard time, he could out brake me though. Give me AWD, 4-wheel ABS, traction control, and stability management, and the tale would have ended much differently. Good times though

Zeb930 and JBL930:
You both make very good points. I am going conduct some sort of air restriction test.

Anyone else, all comments are welcome.

I am also interested in your old IC if you are selling it.
