map line with intercooler

so ive been doing some reading and have heard that moving the map line will help with turbo lag created by adding a intercooler. good idea or bad? also heard that adding a intercooler will drop mpgs?

adding an ic will improve power/egt/mpg if anything... it's certainly not dropping any of those.

Ive heard that also and that moving the line will help with turbo lag. As for the loss in mpg.... i can see that... but once u get a chip reburnt for the intercooler will end that

Simply,cooler air is denser air. The more dense the air is the better / more complete the burn. Thus Better MPGs

i understand that but from what i was looking at last nite in other threads was most ppl were saying that because of the lag created by the ic they were having to push the throttle a lot more thus causing a loss in mgps. i could b wrong as i havnt completed my intercooler yet so im just goin on what ppl have put in other threads.

That is why ol_Blue97 and I are saying to go with some tunes as well. Tuners can get rid of the lag and max your power at the same time. DON'T BUY CAN TUNES!
