C&R ZL1 Brick - Anyone tried it?

Just curious if anyone has tried C&R Racing's intercooler brick? It looks like it has the same construction as the brick in the Kong lid so I'm guessing C&R is making Kong's brick.

$1399 seem like a lot for a brick but if it lowers IATs it would be a good upgrade.

Screw that. My Killer Chiller was less than that with way better cooling.

FYI - From C&R

"We have got some recent studies. We are better than OEM. Temperature differentials are lower on average.
The CTS-V version of the LSA did perform better than the ZL1 but that is most likely due to lid design. Both were though, only marginally better than OEM.
The benefits of a lighter brick that is much stronger than the OEM is the main upgraded over OEM. Possibly opening up the water side some may work better but the test was also done using another company’s supercharger heat exchanger. Both paired together would yield better results.

Stock ZL1 Lid and Brick: IAT 2 Temp Differential Average was 44.66deg
Stock lid with PWR Brick: IAT 2 Temp Differential Average was 38.33deg

Stock CTS-V Lid and Brick: IAT 2 Temp Differential Average was 32.33deg
Stock CTS-V Lid and PWR Brick : IAT 2 Temp Differential Average was 29.66deg

Both lids and bricks were test on a 12 CTS-V, Stock bottom end, Ported Heads, Cam, headers, Pulleys. Car average boost is between 14-15psi."
