I've found with my intercooler that it seems to have a little more torque now.

like MattP said I definitly wouldnt bother with an intercooler until guages, exhaust, etc were done. If after that your having problems with EGTs (which you shouldnt unless maybe while towing) then move on to an I/C. If your not having problems with EGTs the I/C is not worth the money or hassle. and by hassle I mean a total PITA! haha

I will have to disagree with everyone. First off I thought the i/c install was a breeze. I did alot of research bofore hand though and secondly any time you can introduce cooler air into the engine it is a benefit to the motor,you may not recieve any power increases but it certianly increases the longevity of the engine. I'd go with the i/c and down pipe first. Your putting cooler air into the motor and your dumping your hot exhaust that much faster. thats a win win in my book. I don't know, thats just my .02. Gauges are a must too though.
