Intercooler heat soak at track events

So anybody can look at the intercooler review threads and see that the aftermarket IC's are far superior to the stock IC in terms of heat soaking; on single pulls and such you'll see the aftermarket IC go up 10-15 degrees while the stock IC will go up 50-70.

My question is, has anybody datalogged on the track for a 20-25 minute session? Where does the temp on the aftermarket IC's lie after 10 minutes compared to stock? It's obvious they're better for 1-3 pulls, but they're much bigger so it would take more time for them to heat soak. Do they transfer heat that much better also?

Anybody have any data on this?
