is this rwhp? i am surprised that that number is so low,
and i am a newbie, but why do u say in 4th gear?? is that where the max gain was??
RPi or supreme power (one of thier distributors) reported a 25rwhp increase. why the discrepancy? if u say a 16 RWHP gain, that is 35% less than manufacturere claims.

fyi, i in fact am installing the RPi intercooler tommorow morning. unfortuantely, i am in a developing country and without easy access to a dyno..... i also live at v high altitude, so i am looking for more, and denser air as well as some HP gains. although i will not be doing before and after dyno, i do have the seat of my pants to try and guage the benifits.... but i would feel alot more comfortable AFTER having bought this IC if i could see some of u sea level guys with more than 16RWHP gain.

i bought this IC with only limited vendor info. i basically relied on some posts that RPi is a "v good shop", and supreme power knows what they are doing. i hope these "recommendations" turn out correct.

my fingers are crossed for my pending install tomorrow. hope it will be easy and clean as these IC people say, and hope for some good gains. i will post what i can. can some of u others who have or will soon install this IC chime in also?? especially u guys who do dynos.

thanks
