I'm no expert on mechanical things, but to me it looks like there's less surface area for the air to hit than the oem one... Apparently the GP one is best, although I'd imagine it'll be significantly more than that one - looks like a bargain!

I have the grs cooler. Quite expensive but I would say the first thing I noticed is better throttle response which can only be put down to better air flow through the internals of the cooler.

It fits well and cooling wise I don't think there is anything better out there! (Stand to be corrected)

In my opinion High

I'm told by the lads at 1320 that the gp and grs intercoolers perform the best .

Tested results show GP is best performing intercooler out there (With Air Diverter) and GRS is slightly behind but looks better

i have had this predicament eVil on minitorque has a good review write up of them all as he has had them all.

GP is has the best recovery rate however if you wanna go top end the rev range isnt so good and i think it's the most expensive.

airtec has a good air diverter
