while an intercooler does remove a lot of the heat generated by a turbo, the colder the air you feed to the turbo, the lower the temperature it is coming out of the turbo, since compressor efficiency is constant relative to inlet temp.

so, while it does provide some benefit, power/money may or may not be worth it.

NTRCOOL-the kid comes out there all the time. he used to run a red turbo eclipse with black wheels tht ran 17s. he ran his vette at hangover fest and blew the trans/rearend out of it coming off the line. and the power/money comment is true but i didnt have to pay for the set up. the stainless piece was given to me and i already had the filter and rubber section

Damn I forgot about hangover fest. I've been stuck driving the 89 because my Festiva cracked the head.
