Dude 2500 to 4000 is not a good pull, that's pulling away from the drive through window

Sorry I can't help if you can't do the math. Luckily smart people have made access to the internet easy for everyone.

Light gray line. Engine rpm. Starts at 2500 stops at 4000. What graph are you looking at?

Loving all the data. Ignore Mike, he's going to keep twisting it because he's upset there's an alternative and thinks it's cutting into his sales.

Dude I bought one of these too but the graph posted went from 2500 to 4000 rpm. That's not exactly stressing the intercooler to see what it can do

The whole point of this thread is that an inexpensive intercooler can perform just as well as a $700 unit. To prove this you need to show graphs of redline runs in different gears. Posting a graph showing a pull from 2500 to 4k doesn't exactly prove anything. That's like putting a big ass turbo on your car and showing a 1/4 mile run of 14 seconds. What's the point? Then getting all defensive when someone asks for a proper graph makes you look even worse.

Again, I've ordered one! We're all looking for proof of what this can do

How long do you think a pull from 2500 to 4000 rpm takes? That pull took about 8 seconds at WOT.

Are you saying 2500-4000 is a spirited drive? The car redlines at what, like 6500 or so? Plus you were bitching about my math skills when the graph YOU posted clearly shows this

To be fair this graph has no time scale. But you can see the car hits target boost where I drew the red lines. For me that happens slightly before 4k rpm if I remember correctly, so it looks to me like a redline pull.

The software won't let me add a time scale. People do not understand what 1500 rpm means in high gear. It's high load on the motor for 8 seconds. I did 4 of those in a row and that is #3, the 4th the fuel pump ran out of gas and I had to abort.

I encourage you do go out and go WOT in 8th gear from 2500 to 4000 rpm and them come back and tell me it's not spirited.

Sorry I only have 6 gears in my car. If you really want to help please do a 3rd gear to redline and/or 3rd gear and 4th gear to redline

you do it and post a log since you are so knowledgeable. 6th gear is fine too. Again someone said 2/3 gear pulls didn't show the true performance so please go head and help the community with your contributions.

That's weird cause I use datazap and has rpm on the left side up to 7500. Maybe it's a setting.
