    Well, if you're going to list it as well, I'll ask you, as well. Where is any documentation that confirms the drop in temps and drop in quarter times? Nobody seems willing to answer me so far.

    Thanks.

    I've used the Contact Us form on their website as well as a similar form on another site that offers the product. The latter answered, but it was unintelligible. I've not heard from them since I replied. I'm very happy to wait for any documentation.

    Seems like if they are making this wild claim, they’d have dynos or some documentation immediately available ...

    I don't think 9 HP and 11 TQ is going to get you a .7 second drop in the quarter mile.

    Either A) that .7 claim is based off hot lapping the car 4-5 times and getting a time that is .7 lower on run 5 than the first run and then doing the same thing with the intercooler and not seeing the drop. Aka you’ll gain .7 when the car is heatsoaked.

    B) Includes the Chip they show in the dyno

    or C) they ran the car at the track and the intercooler wasn’t the only thing that changed (weather, driver, LC, etc.)

    $105 per 1hp...I can think of better ways to get a true .7 off my time for that amount.

    Intercoolers aren’t as much about gaining HP as they are keeping HP when the car engine gets heat soaked.

    While that is true and I understand the purpose...I can think of other items to get to see performance gains even in a heat soaked period for less than $1000 intercooler.

    The 10 peak HP gain isn't alot but look at the 20-30 HP increase above 5500 RPM. If you add intakes exhaust ecu tune this high RPM gain will only increase.
