    Intercooler core kit, is it worth it?

    With my mods, is this worth the money? Where would gains be noticed, low end, mid range, high end? Thoughts?

    ive got it in mine, was the biggest wast of $500 i spent, should have put the extra cash to a decent intercooler, live and learn.

    Well I think you've got the point now. I wasted some $$$ on that B.S. and it was a day and night difference when I went to an aftermarket intercooler (RIVA).

    It's a significant improvement over stock but nowhere near as good as a big aftermarket cooler. In the heat of summer I was seeing IAT's of 60-65C once it was heat soaked with my C1(10 psi @ 8400). As a comparison, I'm seeing IAT's of ~30C with the Riva cooler & stock wheel(9.0psi @8650). The cooling performance with the R&D core starts to drop off quickly near 10psi, so I definately wouldn't recommend it for anything bigger than a C1. For the best results it really needs to be used with R&D's cooling kit & definately needs the replacement diverter installed.

    If you're interested, I'll sell my complete setup for $300 + shipping. Includes: R&D core, CFM spacer, IC cooling kit, pressure control kit & stock IC housing which is already modified for the cooling kit & has the replacement diverter installed. After the 10% GH discount it's over $750 worth of stuff & you get the housing free.
