New A/A Intercooler

We've been working with an intercooler manufacturer to test out a new Air to air intercooler that is a direct bolt-on solution for the Exige S.

This design promises a nice improvement in Thermal Transfer rate and dP.  See below:

Transfer rate (BTU/hr): 77,000(stock) vs. 105,250(new)
Pressure Drop (PSI): 1.9 vs. 1.4
Temp out (deg F): 198 vs 161
Efficiency (%): 84 vs 91.3

The intercooler has been dynoed and currently undergoing testing on road & track.  We expect it to be very affordably priced at around $800.  ETA: 1Q09
