Looks like approx. 10 degree rise over the course of the logs.

Lots of crucial info is missing from that log
What are the 3 gears?

Number that are posted are not good .. Here is a comparison to Wagner EVO 1 performance which is Wagner's worst intercooler

Wagner EVO 1 goes up the same degrees on a 4 gear pull vs the EBAY intercooler doing it on a 3 gear pull .. If you had continued with the pull until the end of the 5th gear temps would be up another 20 degrees easily

Again, this is Wagner's worst intercooler doing at least 20 degrees better than this ebay intercooler

Nice chart Mike. Easy to see what's going on. Did you construct that chart with an application or what app is producing it with your raw data?

I dunno that 5th gear pull is only 1300 RPM sweep that's TERRIBLE, the irony is just EPIC.

There is no ambient temp, their are no boost numbers. Maybe it's running stock boost, maybe it's 60F outside. Where are the Wagner users data and not marketing from Wagner charts.

I think we've seen what we need to see. Those of us with the eBay one have no issues. Vendors are going to defend their pocketbooks. Take from this thread what you will.

Im not here to defend Wagner as I do not have their intercooler but the 1500 rpm in 5th gear was after running it to redline in 2nd, 3rd, then 4th. Whole different ball game. Almost every intercooler is going to be better than stock. The question is do you want to pay more to have that ever so slight edge?

Unfortunately I'm having possible diverter vale issues or I'd post some nice logs. I'm having the dealer look at it on Monday, hopefully they don't give me stink about the CP/DP/and IC (removing the JB4)

I think no matter what i post you are still going to defend you decision to buy a cheap product which is completely fine.

I said that couple times in this thread, as long as user is happy with the numbers posted and they think this is the right intercooler for them, then good luck.
Just dont claim this cheap core to be on the same level as the brand ones
