I/C CFM Numbers
Do we have verifiable CFM numbers for the popular I/C's out there?

We dont have any cfm data for the JD IC. would be interested to know or know other IC's numbers...

Also CFM is only one part of how well an IC works. It may flow a ton but cooling efficiency could be crap. And how do you measure cooling efficiency? Certain cores may require more or less water than others to get maximum efficiency, or possibly more or less pressure. So may variables we could talk about numbers until we're blue in the face.

I know, but a CFM of 300 ain't gonna help me much.
For one, I want to know the CFM for the R&D and Riva IC's and I'm not having any luck getting that information
The Pro Stock IC is reportedly 40 cfm over stock, what about the rest?
I'd like to know instead of just using one because it is currently popularly bought.
Frozenboost (Their numbers) -
Type 14 700 CFM
Type 20 450 CFM
Type 19 700 CFM
Type 3 700 CFM
Type 13 450 CFM
Type 4 700 CFM

Good luck getting all that info. It's so much easier to just go with what works. So far they all work IMO. There are other pluses and minuses, but I think we've already beat that horse to death.

The only "true" information about intercooler specs and end results is by using a Motec,Vipec or whatever to get the logged data back to back on a baseline ski. Otherwise it's just another internet pissing contest.
The other considerations is the ease of use/fitting and what the intented setup it's going on. More revs more cfm needed.
Hence I went with the stupidly huge type 12 down behind the electrical wall. That way the only thing I can bitch about now is getting the "thing" in and out when I need to. Efficency wise, there is NONE BETTER!!
I would be happy to post my log files on the Type 12 and the Riva if anyone with the other intercoolers would care to share. Data never lies.
