How happy are you with the KL racing intercooler? I've been hearing quite a few different stories about them. From excellent to a piece of crap. Which one do you have, the 60 or the 70 mm?

It's the 60mm thick. I'm totally happy with it, it work perfectly well ( as an intercooler ), nearly "plug'n play" and nice ( for me ).

So said, excellent for me

After some trials, I can say that :

-the cooling efficiency is increased significantly by the osmozed water + high quality anti-freeze!

My engine temp is more stable and I can feel it run smoother in every driving condition.

My car have also the Nissen cooler, and a brand new water pump, + a 87°C T-stat.

this could be figment

the instrument got a resistor which makes the needle stay in the middle for a good amount of C° ;)

My needle stays in middle when using pure Water, pure Coolant, 50/50 mix and the one time i had to fill beer from my trunk in it cause i lost a hose in the middle of nowhere thank god i had 4 sixpacks with me :D one for me.. one for my engine
