What intercooler are you running

Ok so had the car tuned yesterday and the tuner noticed the intercooler wasn't doing that good a job and was higher than it should. He mentioned looking into a different one and I might gain maybe a pound or two of boost lost by the heat not being dissipated from the intercooler. Oh yea I have the 1300 hp air to air Procharger, he said these aren't as good as others out there.

How much power are you making? On a dyno the IAT always goes higher than the street.

I'm not sure. With the Ysi, I made over 1k to the wheels and the turbos are making more with less boost so it is possible but there are other factors at play as well to make a true judgment.

I have never heard bad things about the vortech IC but I have heard bad things about the procharger IC. CX racing IC (on ebay) have a good rep on ls1tech.

Blake, what bad things have you heard? I was going to go with the procharger 1300 hp that measures 27.5 x 4.5 x 12.5" and like this since it leaves a lot of my radiator open to the airflow....road course is my plan so cant go with the giant AGP unit.

I have only heard great things about the PC FMICs

Clinc was using one (not sure which one though) for his f1x build and it was causing significant boost loss - it was restrictive. You might PM him for details as I don't want to disseminate faulty info based on my memory or lack thereof.
