    I will explain in layman's terms. leaving your barn door open on a day with a gentle breeze blowing @2mph to stay cool is a whole lot different than leaving it open during a @200mph tornado and getting blown out of the barn.

    So CFM (flow) @ a given orifice (or Pipe size) is directly proportional to air speed.

    So knowing this, how would a noob like myself choose correctly when looking for an intercooler? or would i just take a shot in the dark and pick my favorite vendor and hope i get good?
    I'm legitimately asking as i dont really understand the true purpose of an intercooler and how to choose the one that best fits my needs. definitely not trying to the veloster challenge, but i would like to embarrass a genesis coupe every once in a while.

    If you you don't understand the purpose of an intercooler I would suggest you start your search for one by understanding the purpose of an intercooler. Just a thought...

    To do a single pull against another car? Get an intake, downpipe, exhaust, and tune.

    Never did understand reasoning behind this. Anodizing is one thing, powder coating though, doesn't make sense.

    Way to sound condescending though

    The pipes are powder coated, the Intercooler uses a special type of paint.
