12x18 core?

About time. Personally I don't like those tiny intercoolers some of you are using, they look funny/undersized (even though they are probably fine), like an MSM intercooler.

Then again mine's way offset and looks funny too.

The question that begs to be answered: Why? Are you going to run more boost? Or were intake temps elevated? Or did you finally admit that offset intercoolers are too cool?

Why do you need to offset your intercooler? Do y'all pansies need A/C?

no, simply cause i can. old core was 11" in length, so it didn't fully cool the charge. this new core is 18" in length and should fully cool the charge as much as it can. I was only seeing a 20F delta before, but comeon....it's cool.

new teaser (sorry no taser):

Looking very nice, Scott. Not just the IC- the whole package. I'm so deliriously happy to see Rev2Rev rising from the metaphorical ashes.

Yeah Sav- I can tell you know what real heat is like by the location in your in your user info.

I got stuck in an interstate traffic jam last summer with a 101f ambient. I did about 3 miles in 45 minutes w/o a/c, so I can't imagine being stuck in a "man sized" traffic jam.

Let's face it - pulling the a/c is the easy way out of actually making it all work with all the turbo stuff.

I guess you pro a/c guys like that power steering and all that other fancy stuff that slows you down and adds weight too?
