I believe I have the IC0047 from CXracing (will have to confirm with Matt@Camber-toe).

Front Mount or V-Mount Turbo Intercooler.
- Bar & Plate Aluminum Intercooler
- Core Size: 18"x12"x3.5"
- Overall Size: 24"x12"x3.5"
- 3.5" Thick Core
- 2.5" Backward Inlet & Outlet


Damn right they do, specially when compared to this:
OEM Intercooler
-Unknown Type
-Core Size (est): 21.25"x5.75"x3.5"
-Overall Size (est): 26.5"x5.75"x3.5"
-3.5" Thick Core
-2.5" Inlet & Outlet

(i'll have to post up the picture of the old one when I get home)

well you will typically be boosting a psi or so lower than normal

quite possible. my autotune blows ive never been able to autotune the right target psi even before ic. My pc broke so im gonna try and meet up with frankie90 soon and get the new maps/turn off auto tune. so if i set it to 15 psi and i cant hit it you think it might be the ic?

Possibly, but it's also dependent on the flow rate of the ic. You shouldn't loose any power though cuz going through that much space should cool it tremendously so you should make more power on less psi.

My Dyno from near-stock. I didn't notice any loss and it makes a good bit of top-end at those lower power levels (that is a Mustang dyno).

yeah, thats a good example of a pressure drop from your logs. Compared to the stock IC 13.4 psi with the cx racing ic 12.5 psi with the same low end power, and more top end. Pretty damn good!
