** The Enforcer **
My three pulls were within .55 whp of each other, and I think that's only because the car wasn't shutdown at the precise same rpm in the three pulls. When I say the lines are on top of each other it's literally that.FWIW, I have a heatshield (with gold foil insulation) between my intercooler and the engine/exhaust as well (even though the 2-Eleven's intercooler is located far behind the Exige's location). And, FWIW... when I had my car dyno'd... the three pulls were also within a few HP of each other.
Sadly, I think real-life conditions are much harsher than dyno conditions.
I think the RLS IC had enough thermal capacity (reserve) that it never even approached the point of heat soak, even without airflow to cool it.
