hi guys

will be doing my new intercooler piping soon, just wanted to ask what's the difference (if any) between using aluminium and stainless steel intercooler piping?

I think the main difference is:

a) The weight (Aluminium is much lighter)
b) The noise. Aluminium will produce a much louder induction noise, mailny because it is less insulative and generally thinner.

These are the only main differences I think. Hope this helps
Cheers

All of the above +

Aluminium suffers less from heat soak than stainless steel.
