    Intercoolers are used to cool the air temp down because the air picks up heat off of the S/C or turbo's spinning compressor wheel. Now lets say he is trying to cool ambient air with an air-to-air intercooler, let's just say this won't do much if anything. He might get SOME effect if he was running ice water in a water-to-air intercooler, but again since the air is already at ambient air temp it isn't going to do much. Unless of course you live on the surface of the sun. LOL Just my $0.02.

    That is the way I am leaning. Either we are missing a rear-mount turbo or something or the guy is lying about the power. Maybe it is a buddy's dyno graph? Either way I would want to see it to believe it.

    Just cause you can't open the hood and see it doesn't mean there isn't one on there!

    full of BS, there is no reason to have an intercooler if there isn't boost. If anything it would cause a drop in power. I know my intercooler breaths well, but without the boost it may just cause a restriction in flow.

    Sounds like the intercooler is for his mouth.....where all the hot air is coming from.
