Intercooled? So the exiting air is cooled further just so it can exit to the atmosphere...

Wow, way too technical for me...

Sounds like a little bit of the ricer bs rearing its ugly head.

I see a lot of over improved exhaust tips, intake housings....you know. Sounds like fancy advertising rather than reality and function.

They remind me of Borla's old styled exhaust tips. I thought the "intercooling" part was to reduce global warming.

It makes the exhaust denser, so it settles to the ground and doesn't bother people...

Doh. No wonder why they look Borla-ish. They are Borlas.
