Just curious to see how much rwhp intercoolers add rwhp wise to us 96-98 gt owners. I have a sq trim. planning on putting a paxton a/a intercooler on. I know it cools temps a lot, allowing more boost to be run, but how much rwhp are they generally good for?

did you guys see that episode of HP TV? They had that vortech on a GT and then in a later episode added the cooler and gained 15rwhp. They also said the gains would be more if you were on the highway driving the car.

I missed that one.

damn they play it pretty often :dunno: it was a Black GT ( Joes personal car ) they put on the vortech and had 287rwhp i think.....then a few weeks later they did a show on adding the cooler and ran the dyno again and had 302rwhp.

cool, so talking to guys i can get anywhere from a 15-40rwhp gain, depending on boost levels and such...not a bad pickup!!

Actually, adding an intercooler will add nothing unless you utilize the cooler IAT, by adding more total timing or boost.

See ya
