    Those running Xchargers with internal IC

    Just curious what kind of boost numbers you guys are seeing and at what RPM?

    I'm wondering if the stock IC is holding me back.

    Thanks guys.

    Yep, it does.

    RPM probably will not be the issue, it's the air-flow at mid-range, which is the mid-range punch the ski will develop, which is what you will feel in the "Seat-of-the-pants".

    Pressure will be the same at identical RPM, but air-flow is restricted.

    IC directly effects boost. x-charger with xs cooler is about 11lbs at 8100. X charger with riva gen1 cooler is about 10lbs @8100. I would be willing to bet stock IC will be even less. However It's not just about boost. Better cooling Ic's ussualy have more pressure drop but can also make more power although not the case with the stocker. It cant cool enough. Def holding you back a bunch.
