gone and ordered one of those fancy big intercoolers from the nice people at Elkparts
So what in the way of
am I going to notice?
Am I correct in thinking quicker spool up, less lag and better response between the 3k-4k rev range?
And is it worth sourcing some silicon hoses to connect it or are the current standard ones suffice?
TIA

hi,
just got my new intercooler for my 9000 2.0lpt autobox, MapTun Stage3. The IC is from MapTun.
I have experienced boost cut and power loss due to warm weather, especially at top end at full load. The new IC is a direct swap.
Result? better trottle response, the car pull more in all rpm, boost pressure come quicker and stronger. I have not tried top end effect yet but I think it should help maintain max boost 18-19psi up to 5000+rmp now.

Great product.


I post some pictures of the IC installation at following url.

Hello

Would an intercooler do the same difference on a T7 car? With an ECU (9-5 Aero 260PS) would the intecooler and inlet pipe add for example about 20PS in order to reach 280 PS?
