no no no not the usual question...

I actually have a FMIC, in particular this:

https://www.ebay.it/itm/Intercooler-Maggiorato-frontale-Fiat-Punto-GT-Uno-Turbo-1-3-1-4-Coupe-T20-T16/300879594247?hash=item460dd24307:g:TyEAAOxy14VRTHKd

18cm x 70cm x 6,5cm thickness (inlet and outlet diameter 56 mm)

now I'm asking if it can be a good upgrade to swap to this:

https://www.ebay.it/itm/Intercooler-Maggiorato-frontale-universale-Fiat-Coupe-2-0-Turbo-16V-20V-Audi-TT/261347271392?hash=item3cd982e2e0:g:E90AAOxyeR9TIJJ-

23cm x 70cm x 6,5cm thickness (inlet and outlet diameter 56 mm)

I also read good things about Evo and Pro Alloy intercoolers

thanks for help

1260 cm2 vs. 1610 cm2 => +28% area.

Bigger area => more cooling => more power

Do you have a widget so you can see intake temps?

Good calcs there Freddan and makes sense as an upgrade to allow lower charge temperatures.
