The final part of the puzzle is now at it's most efficient - the intercooler.

We were already getting great results but wanted a better recovery rate for temperatures and the new core has given this to us so we can now finally go into production.

We also played around with the intake a little more and that's also slightly more efficient.

We could have released this kit based on the first prototypes of the intake and intercooler but it's been worth the wait as inlet temps are excellent as is the recovery rate.

Will put up some images of what we've done to the intake shortly compared to our initial plans.

Still making 625hp crank (dyno dynamics) / 515whp with correction factor 1.005. Temps are a good 15 degrees higher than our last released dyno results but the power has been maintained due to the highly efficient intercooler core. That's how much better it is so I am sure you will all agree with my above statement... it was worth the extra wait.

R&D can go on for ever but I think it's time we call it a day now and put the whole thing into production.
