As far as the IC, the stock IC is fine at stock turbo levels, because it flows within its efficiency range, a bigger turbo would need more air. However the stock endtanks are known to come apart at higher than stock boost levels, unless your secure them. The PW is a very nice IC and eye candy, and I know originally he planned on more power but currently his build is pursing other directions We'll see how close I was, and what he actually says, lol
Haha, I don't think I could have answered it better myself, thanks Jorden!!

I just got back from a nice trip with my car and the suspension was definitely the best part. I'm only on click 3 of 15 in dampening but I felt it was perfect for the twisty roads through the mountains. I've had my trouble with the coilovers to start out with but the new design of them are making them really competitive for their price. I've been given all the updates from Stance as they are coming out so I have no complaints at this point with them. Also since I made the protective covers for them, they have been staying dirt free which makes them happy.

The intercooler, as Jorden said is just eye candy at my power levels. It's a great design but if I was 100% sure that I won't be going for more power I would have saved the $1000 and bought a new appliance for my house!

No difference at all in power and would have been fine on the stock one.

Cheers!
