Looks good dude. It's so hard to choose between IC these days because everyone has such a similar product.

What specifically geared you towards the AA IC? From what I read...an IC being stepped and inlet/outlet being 3" for high flow is best. But they all advertise this for the most part though and the $$ range is ridiculous.

Any tips bro? I can get one locally for a good price. Thx

I only bought this honestly because there was a local guy here and it was a great deal, he even put it in for me! Couldn't ask for more. I searched a little and I found these Numbers you might want to keep in mind while looking for an Intercooler.
Good Luck!

Core Volume:
Helix: 11917 cm3
Stett: 10160 cm3
HPF: 13282 cm3
AA: 11085 cm3

The stock IC is: 7620 cm3.

I picked mine for a couple reasons, I wanted a large frontal surface area, it had pretty much the largest overall volume with it's stepped core and it had a nice internal finpack setup, plus it was cheapest option available to me so it was a win-win in every possible way.

AMS per your sig. Interesting...

From what I hear any aftermarket IC is better than the stock unit so I guess cost is important, but I still do want a good quality unit.

I think in a few gets I'd likely go RB set-up and don't want to e buying twice. We'll see, but if they all output same hp/trq numbers than the cheapest will be the best for me.

Wish they had more specific info. on these units everyone is so annoyingly general when they advertise their product.

check my sig for a FMIC that I feel works just as good as the AA race and other large FMIC for 1/2 the price.

Does my sig still say AMS?? LOL
I changed to an F1-Racewerks intercooler because it had what I mentioned above.
