forgive my technical ignorance but is there any benefit in getting an upgraded intercooler on anything less than a stage 5 car ( without engine upgrades). From what Ive read it seems stage 4.5 is the general limit before needing rods doing so a) will an upgraded intercooler give a benefit and b) even if it can is it worth doing without doing rod etc...
Thanks for views/ advice

Intercoolers are a flow restriction, flow increases with power. Rods are limited by torque. You could swap intercoolers and gain 30bhp at the top end where your torque is well below its peak value just by holding a higher torque level at a great air flow level.

In short, yes it is worth doing.

Excuse the shameless plug, but I have a Forge Intercooler kit for sale at Litchfield if you decide to go for one. PM me if you're interested.
