I could be wrong, but not everything that's been discussed here has been done previously, or at least, discussed openly and publicly. Many claims have been made about the efficiency of different a/a or a/w intercoolers, but not much actual data has been disclosed. Furthermore, some of those claims have been made by vendors, which is subject to bias, either intentional or unintentional.Not as long as it is valid.
But what is being done here has already been done by neumerous people numerous times. What information do you think is missing or needs to be answered?
Most of us are not professional automotive engineers (although I worked as an engineer for more than a few years), but are interested in this topic because it's our hobby. I see it as a kind of enthusiast's peer review, where we can feel free to share our techniques, data, and results, perhaps learning something new in the process. If I wasn't enjoying it, I wouldn't be doing it. I'm sure I'm not alone in this sentiment.
