I have one on my car, then I am on my 4th intercooler, works really well, airtemps are a couple of degrees down on standard so runs about 4 deg above ambient. On a power run it cools very well and its recovery is very quick. My car runs 280 bhp on this intercooler.

How much for fitting? Also how much of a hike in insurance premiums?

womble do you think theres only really a gain in power when the standard cooler is struggling?
in other words with similar engine temps and similar intake temps would standard and aftermarket coolers make the same power?, or do you think the after market cooler will always make more power.

Can we take that graph on face value, does the new cooler always make 10 more bhp or was the standard test conducted with a very hot cooler which then makes the difference look much larger than it actually is, when compared to a cool engine on a cool day with a better cooler.

Ive just learnt to be cautious with power claims.!

womble 280 bhp....have you changed turbo charger to make that power?

After a couple of laps of a track you can definitely feel the standard cooler struggling and the power dropping off, so this would be a good investment for any car that spends time on track

iat on my 200t are ok for about 3 laps at about 20-30 c after that they climb to 50/60 c upwards and you can feel the drop off in 4 and 5 gears , the torque gets strangled right back from 3500 upwards and the car pulls loads of ignition timing out when getting up to those temps

I did a hill climb with stock 200t and it lost a lot of power towards the top in the second run. Speeds were up till about 80 kph, hairpins in 1st gear.
