I'm just under the impression a hotter motor helps attack the corners faster. ? My buddy's VDF runs a 10.5 and it seems just right. I should make it clear though I haven't even ran my VDF yet since the bills seem to be coming out of nowhere. Oh well, if I feel I do have to go 10.5, the LRP X12 10.5 sure would look sexy in a gold VDF!

Default Blade's Aluminum Intercooler

an awesome dress up and adds some good balance weight. Recommend not to disassemble but to actually weld or seal the side since it is 2 pieces and is held by glue
