Is it worth upgrading the IC?

I am in Fl and was wondering if it will be worth upgrading the inter cooler. When it is cool outside I can feel the car is more responsive. Will a larger inter cooler really help with the heat soak in the hot humid summers?

Is this a trick question? Seems like you already know the answer.

Aside from adding a little weight to the front end, there are really no disadvantages to any aftermarket intercooler.

A better IC won't make your car feel like it does when it's 60 degrees outside. But it will definitely help preventing heat soak and power loss on hot days.

Seriously man, all bs aside, when I got my Mishi IC and pipes installed and went for the first drive, I could tell. South Texas heat be no joke, and any help with cooler air is a worthy mod/expense in my book.
