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.
We're cool man, my panties were never twisted, takes a lot more effort to do that. Perhaps typing through the interwebs often puts a connotation (and hence an interpretation) that isn't really there (or intended). Didn't take anything you said personally, but more as a different point of view. (actually not altogether different as I am not sure we principally disagreed on anything that was said).
