This includes the backseat and seatbelt hardware to be clear. It all adds up. Passenger heated seat has to be 60-65 pounds. Anybody started a weight removal thread with weights? Weight loss on these cars is big help. *Remember Wolf was a GIAC stage 2 bolt on car with weight reduction. Took down a bunch of cars. .

My problem is I'm lazy. If I take it out...I gotta put it back...

Sub'd since I'm still waiting on BMS's IC and no word about that.

Yea . . . I wish you had some before and after logs. Even at the current temp it would give us an idea of performance. But, for $300 . . . I can't see a reason not to go this route unless BMS comes out with one at the same price. Thanks again for even taking the plunge and reporting back! Its going to help a lot of people.

Is this IC too big for an IS20?

+1. Anyone have thoughts on the above? I have an elementary understanding of intercoolers, but I know pressure loss is something to keep in mind with larger intercoolers...so any insight would be much appreciated!

Did you feel like you needed to hose this out before instead or did the interior seem clean of metal shavings?

Stock IC is fine for untuned car. Once you tune it you're gonna want one though.

No such thing. If you've ever had a Intercooler upgrade before you can relate...turbo engines love cooler denser air no matter what.

All of the talk on pressure drop is blown WAY out of proportion. Boost is actually a measure of restriction. Not that our cars will make any boost pressure other than what the ECU calls for anyway...DV and WG are controlling boost precisely.

Great, thanks man appreciate your knowledge drop. Makes this an even more enticing buy.

Thanks I'm new to turbos.. If the logs look good I wouldn't mind getting this and installing if for my future tune.. But if it's fine with the car being stock then I'd say it's a great upgrade.

Yeah even stock you'll see noticeable gains, more consistent power, and a smoother more linear power curve

Really is all positives and no negatives, reduced temps also help with engine and turbo longevity...im probably buying one for myself, birthday present

Though we don't know the actual pressure drop of the ebay intercooler...most if not all (we don't have data for all, so not 100%) of the aftermarket intercoolers have LESS pressure drop then the stock unit. So even though there is a larger volume to content with, that internal volume is less restrictive then the stock tube and fin unit.
