    Process West is usually a name i hear alot of good things about

    also, you said you have a tune. ask your tuner if he has any recommendations. maybe he has exp with one? idk how much extra power an intercooler is worth on the stock turbo.

    do you track the car regularly? if not do you really need an intercooler? not tryin to talk you out of it or anything just something to think about. $1000 is a lot of money for minimal gains

    No I do not track. But it is daily driven. And I have had issues with stock tmic not holding stage 2 we'll.. Been replaced and tuner only Sales Perrin tmic. And just said it would be just fine. Just can't really decide.

    Perrin makes good products, ProcessWest is the best of the best. Although i am taking a chance with Grimmspeeds new tmic, i havent had a problem with any of their products before and they put a good bit of testing in before releasing it.. The fact that your tmic now isnt doing well with only stage 2 is a little concerning to me.

    It's the plastic end tanks, they sometimes blow apart at stock boost pressures.. if you crank it up? Forget about it.
