Bar and plate intercooler might benefit you more than a tube and fin. Bar and plate takes longer to soak but don’t expel the heat as quickly as a tube and fin at speed. I’ve had good results with my HKS though. I’ve let it heat soak up to 130F and after cruising on the highway have it drop to 78F ambient temp that day was 60F
I have noticed it takes a moment to cool off... I won't say how I have figured this out.... as per forum "rules"
The other day down here it was 94 degreees...... after 30 min in Publix it took 10 min to cool down to 10 degrees above ambient... This heat probably does not matter which IC one gets.....
Edit... Usually I am only 10 degrees above ambient... however the other day it was 94 degrees out (Felt like 104 according to the heat Index) and it took a good 5-10 min to cool down....... I could tell I had NO power when I got on it north of 4k RPM
