52.0 to 52.2, btw. In reality running on light fuel it's more like 53%+ on the nose, when we'd prefer it was 53+% on the rear... And yes, this it may well slow you down despite the increased power on a tight autocross. I absolutely fuel my car for weight distribution at the autocross, by the way. YMMV.
No need to get your your panties in a twist, I am not attacking you personally or your modding skills. I am saying that if and when I choose an intercooler, weight is something I'll be considering among other factors. I'd suggest others might as well, though it seems you've got one of the lighter ones already.
