How come 14-15 isn't on the poll? I got 14, but a few were complete guesses that I happened to get right.

8 :(

Anyone else old enough to remember the 1988 Shelby CSX VNT? One of my favorites growing up (the **** was I thinking) I believe that was the first mass-production (in limited numbers) car to use the VNT. I'm sure the technology of it has advanced though, or not.

11, and I disagree with a few answers. Oil could be used as an Intercooler coolant... provided that oil wasn't the engine oil or if the temp was lower than the discharge temp of the air being cooled.

It would however be a bit more messy and you would need a really thin oil
