Not that I don't appreciate it, but the temperature reduction is not even remotely accurate. I tested long gear pulls on the AA and had an average reduction of 38F and you are saying 16%??? Second, percentage drop is not a good measure at all of intercooler efficiency. You should be logging absolute temperature drop or temperature above ambient. You should also refuse to use data that is not standardized, i.e. long gear pulls.
