How is the new intercooler? Any ideas on a production date for the kit yet?

It's better in terms of size, it allows better airflow to the radiator but it's a step backwards in terms of pressure drop, both Imran and I were surprised to see a 1-2psi pressure loss with the new intercooler. I guess that's part and parcel of developing a new product, so I'll await the next revised intercooler and test again

That's unfortunate and sounds like a setback.

I really want to hold out for this kit but will be ready to go ahead early next year so will probably end up getting the ESS kit.

Shame.

Are you breaking your e46 Martyn?

If you're looking for a development car for the charger, I will gladly offer mine.
