Intercooler question

Anyone do a comparision between a DIIC, Spearco and an old school H-max Tapercore? Have a Tapercore but wondering if its worth the effort to use one of the other two.

I'm going to go out on a limb, and say the ol' Tapercore is doing just fine...and will continue to do so for another few hundred hp.

Re: Intercooler question

Gee, Bill, you think having the new engine sit in the garage since early last year is enough? Maybe if I let it sit there longer it'll be good for 550?

The TC is physically bigger than the other two. That's about all I know.
