Got my intercooler in today,so far it has been awesome,install was perfect,so far my temps have dropped substantially and the car seems to just pull harder and more consistant, no sign of lag or a build up of boost just smooth strong pull along with low temps that drop the harder it goes . I usually see temps in the 150-180 range here in Florida .Today I saw no higher than 120 degree temps and as low as 109 around town . Glad this product was so easily available and it literally was at my door in just a few days .

Wow!!! Very nice.

Hopefully the phenolic spacers will be created for our manifold so we can bring down the iat even further.

IC works greats when moving.... sitting in the pits and staging lanes is always a problem... hence why tracks always run out of bagged ice.

I've been wishing for a thermal isolation spacer for our platform.
