The Greddy XL makes the AMS luke puny in comparison. Not sure if you need anything that large for stock turbos though. Any of the aftermarket solutions will work fine.

I believe GReddy 29R has surface area of 323 sq. in and AMS 198 sq. in. What the core is rated, is what I would like to know since nobody publish the information. I have seen huge ICs on Neon, 370Z twin turbos, but the CFM ratings are low.

AMS has proven their fmic power capability and so did greddy. dont think you can go wrong with both.
i'd guesstimate that AMS to have a lower pressure drop since the relatively smaller surface area.

you are correct. on the other hand a company shooting for world record numbers wouldn't stick to their FMIC if it started falling short in terms of charge cooling efficiency.

Even at ALPHA 12 level the IAT's on our FMIC are rock solid. Couple that with OEM like fitment and reliability and you cant go wrong. The price is very affordable for one of the best intercoolers on the market.

Bigger isn't always better when building an IC.

I agree with you but why no data ( I am a data kind of guy) as AMS must have tons of data due to speed density setup. In my line of job, we make multi-million dollar technical decisions based on data and tons of testing. A log of Alpha 12 before and after ic during the one mile run would be great along with ambient temp. That been say with current data and pricing, I would chose AMS over GReddy due to price and my Hp level goal (less than alpha 12).

Well I guess its more of finding the right conditions to test in. The dyno room doesn't replicate real world airflow nearly well enough and a street test would be just flat out unsafe. The mile would be a good idea. Maybe we can do that the next time out.
