I am trying to keep it as original as possible and updating some OEM items with a later version of OEM.. I have them both.. so I think I am going to go with OEM at first to keep my 'scheme' as you put it . I really don't think there is going to be a huge difference over one or the other with my desired power levels. The Factory OE 19 STi intercooler can support up to 400 hp reliably.. The car has been a Stage 2 before with the larger aftermarket intercooler.. so I know what it 'can do' with it.. I am curious to see what the OE 19 I/C can do..
Previous Stage 2 ..323/376 for reference:
