Ok a couple to things I would like to coment on regarding this thread and shitty Ebay inter-coolers.
- Just because you still "hold" boost using a shitty inter-cooler does not mean it's as good or better than the stocker. In most cases, when using a shitty ebay brand, you hafta turn up the boost a bit to equal the same pressure you had with the stocker.
- The way we make more power in an engine is by improving the amount of "flow" to and through the engine right? We change out the exhaust, the head, the intake manifold in order to gain engine effiency (spelling?) which results in more HP. Why would you put anything in the mix that would be detrimental to flow?
- So in closing, you want as little compromise in flow (but still provides a reduction in temp), as possible. The stocker is not that bad and unless you flog you car without mercy or going big turbo, I don't really see a reason to change to a different IC.
disclaimer: This is my opinion, not a fact.
