So I'm reading this as a very good idea if you track or go prolonged WOT. So if I don't do either then.... Waste of $$$

TBH I'm after max kw not track readiness. There's only one person I know of here who is SERIOUS about the track readiness approach and that would be a little bird respect! DPs would help I guess but the little Vader is noisy enough and I'm not into smelly cars so I will leave these alone.

Unfortunately not. I got the vinyl stickers, PITA to apply tbh. Nate didn't reply to me when asked about b&w stuff. They look ok in person.

IC definitely helps with power, not just those tracking...

It might only add 5-10 kw up top but it'll keep the power curve flatter up the top, for longer.. same with an intake.

+1

my temps generally 8-12 deg lower, especially during repeated hard acceleration. The stock IC just can't cool fast enough.

I think the power would be more like 2-4. Those ic's are shit small

Good engineering makes an IC, not size. True an IC won't give more power, but will stop you losing power under hot or hard driving conditions.
