intercooler is mostly for efficiency, but there has been gains when using hard piping rather than the OEM, with a tune maybe around 5-10hp. But its a needed mod for the stock turbo because of heat soaking. But your not going to see much of a difference before the tune, and i suggest injectors before the tune...horsepower/tq gains with a fmic?
injen ic pipes
( tune to come)
now if i add in a front mount what will the increase in power be?
Just curious, but given the climate you live in, did the temp/humidity go down progressively through the night? that could explain the numbers, no?I gained 10whp & 14ish of tq with my cxracing fmic. Funny thing is hp # kept going up as i did more runs. 1st run was 242, 2nd run was 244, 3rd and 4th runs were 245 then called it a night
