I finally finished my intercooler install, total cost was around 350 dollars and time! Lots of time!! The reason is I had to get the correct boots and send stuff back and get new ones because mainly I measure about 4 times and forget what I measured and order stuff anyway!

Stage two tune from Diesel Freaks. My biggest thing was temps at highway speeds going to and getting from the trail. I'm in Southern AZ and it takes miles of black top to get to the trails. In the summer time my intake temps were easily 220 degrees, anyway to reduce those temps is useful IMO.

Stock or aftermarket radiator?

Exhaust temperature is more pertinent. As long as your egt's are in check you're OK. An intercooler would not seem to hurt though. I'm all for overkill. My stock ecm with the stock passive turbo doesn't make much boost. I also have a pyrometer as well. Do you have some kind of sensor/thermo-coupler in the intake to measure the temp?

The roxor has a pressure/temp sensor that you can monitor with a digital reader using the CAN/ODB2 connector. I use a autometer dashlink 2 for my gauges, didn't want to install physical gauges but I'm probably going to break down and install a EGT sensor and gauge.

The reason I installed the intercooler was longevity, getting that intake temp down will have a reduction in EGTs they are a direct correlation.

I installed these some time back just to get a baseline for future mods.

Nice clean install! I purchased one of those plates that relocates the speedo a little lower and gives you 3 holes for the gauges up top. Just didn't want to cut into the Roxor if I didn't have to.
