    Was considering getting a jb4 since I currently have a racechip. Was gonna use that sweet tax money but at this price point that may have to wait or I may have spent a bit more of that refund

    Do you know the difference in weight between this and stock? Looks awesome btw.

    Definitely more budget-friendly, but like someone else asked, the weight compared to stock would be good to know.

    Additionally, any cutaways of the cores? It looks like a bar and plate, but I'd also like to see fin density on the inside which is a huge factor in balancing cooling and pressure loss across the intercooler. Some cheaper intercoolers have very low fin density which helps keep the flow up, but the cooling power is sacrificed and compensated for by making the intercooler significantly larger thus adding more weight than a smaller design with higher fin density. At the same time, sufficient density slows the air enough to cool it and make it more dense, sometimes making up for the loss of pressure and either netting almost no pressure loss or sometimes a gain at the higher RPMs where air coming in is ultra hot.

    Also, are there turbulators in the core? That can balance lower fin density with additional cooling as well, but does usually results in pressure loss since it slows the air down significantly.

    EDIT: Typos.

    Ive searched for a thread about the performance gains for an aftermarket intercooler and I cannot seems to find any.

    Obviously cooler denser air will always help performance, but how much of a performance increase do you see with a jb4 and this or any other after marked intercooler.

    Thank you

    Is that the external fins or the internal fins? It's not that they both can't have the same density, but this is so far zoomed in, it could be either, lol... I'd be happy with that density if this is the internal cutaway (end tank not yet welded) shot, but if it's not, I'd still be worried the internal fin density per square inch might not justify the added size/weight.

    I see you got a little random piece of metal hanging there that could get blown into my engine :p

    Thanks for the side-shot, I'll keep the BMS IC in mind as an option pending some weight and dyno/IAT results :D

    Any chances they could be anodized?

    @Terry@BMS Are the cores manufactured in the U.S.?

    I believe they come with a coronavirus free certification.

    You don’t generally worry about weight when upgrading an intercooler. This is an area you have to take on weight, no way around it. Bigger core is more weight.
