Starting this thread as an outpost for technical data on the avail intercoolers.

I will update as new info/products are offered.

The core dimensions are taken by the posted manufacturer specs. If you own one of these and find the measurements in the real world are different, please let me know!

One thing to note is that size isn't everything. Core design itself makes a performance difference.

very impressive results with the Airtec FMIC! This weekend I wrapped the induction tube with silver and gold heat resistant foil, wrapped a section of the cool pressure tube near the block, and sealed off the sides of the intercooler to the bumper. The results with the stock intercooler show a 15'F increase over ambiant with a 2nd and 3rd gear pull at 21psi. A 23.00psi 6th gear pull ends up with a 20'F increase over ambiant, with that happening pretty quickly under acceleration. Even with the improvements to protecting the air supply from heat and working on increasing the amount of air going thru the stock intercooler, the data continually points to needing an upgraded FMIC. It is great to see actual data being posted! Great job, Razorlab.

Last week I order a mishimotos jline intercooler. After weeks of researching I found this to be the best bang for your buck if you don't mind a little engineering to put that in place. It is a heavy intercooler then the rest of the competition though. Another intercooler that I heard good things about is deadhooks intercooler.
