just arrived today. I can't tell you how long I've been waiting to get my boost temps down. Actually I can... Jan 5th is when I first ordered my IC from M/C, it's been a loooonnng wait but finally I can now complete the bike. Install next week followed by a new dyno tune. Can't wait to get out to the track!

Well we know you managed to get as high as 272 F without the intercooler....please try and ride at the same track, under the same conditions, using the same fuel as before, so we have a valid before and after comparison (with your great on board video).

Pretty.

You have the inverse colours to mine, I went for silver ceramic on the plenum, and black radiator and black pump.

You will be blown away by the installation.
Best instruction book ever, all parts labeled and everything fits exactly like it should.

It's a work of art.

I will, my trackday at that same track is already paid for in Nov, it's a 2-day track outing so I'm really looking forwards to doing full sessions without having to wind her down. Only difference will be after the install we're going back to the dyno and my guy is planning to turn the ignition timing up. Other than that we're sticking with 91oct gas.

Yeah when I asked for black I only really cared about the heat exchanger being black cause that's the part that shows, instead the plenum is the only part black.. but Ben is fixing that, he's sending me out a black heat exchanger which will arrive on Tue and I'm shipping the silver one off to Texas. Good to hear about the install instructions!

Nice! I ordered the completely blacked out kit with ceramic pieces as well. Bike is in the shop waiting for the insurance people to cut the check on the fairing repairs before installing the intercooler and gears.

did my first mountain/canyon ride today since installing the intercooler.
first thing I noticed is that the bike is making more power, almost scary power.
at one point I was passing a line of cars going up hill flat-out in 5th gear and when it climbed up to 12k the front end shot straight up.
I didn't let it come up very far but it sure wanted to.

So running it hard through the twisties, revs between 8k-12k, as I approached my 1 mile straight I looked down and boost temp was 177deg
At the end of the 1 mile straight speed was close to 200 and temp was at 197deg, that's the highest I ever saw it get.
the sh*t works ;)

PS: I successfully custom cut/fit my COX radiator guard over both my OEM radiator and the new heat exchanger, so both are fully protected from rocks.

I just wish the unit was a bit cheaper....Its totally worth it in packaging and construction...Just have to sell a kidney to buy it.

I am wondering if it will come down over time like the TT3 or other bits and bobbles have.

Once you have touched this kit you can "feel" the value. It's insanely well built like nothing else I've ever bought. The care and attention to detail is amazing and I've never had instructions and labeled individual packets like that before. Everything fits as it should and the unit works as advertised... heck, he's even made a special billet spanner for the hard to get to fittings.

It's also carved from a solid billet block, about one cubic foot of alloy and considering that aluminium has gone up 30% this year I would guess pricing would only go up, not down.

...besides, you don't need two kidneys.

Yeah, I was looking at the high rez pics of it. Thats a good quality kit. Even includes the proper wrench for the fittings...Yeah, thats overthinking it for the customer. I like it.

Sigh...I know I need one. I am procrastinating.

How much are kidneys going for on the dark web these days ? Gotta fire up TOR, do some root spoofing, and look around for a buyer...(Im kidding)

That's what you want, more power!

It's interesting though, the intercooler won't make much extra power (a little from cooler fuel densities I guess) maybe your previous tune was getting some knock at full-noise?

Will be interesting to see how much more you can get out it now.

yeah I know. I have over $50k into my H2, just dropped in K-tech, auto blip, and in a couple days going to do a full ABS delete. Where does it end? All's I can tell you is after I went stage III I could barely ride my bike without it getting too hot, almost not at all at the track. I'm just glad to be able to ride it again so I've already forgotten about the $3,500

I don't know.. because of my torn meniscus in my knee I'd been sidelined for 3 months. When I took the H2 out for a quick test ride right after the IC was installed the bike scared the crap out of me. I thought it was just me not being used to the power, but after that mountain/canyon run yesterday I knew it had way more power. I spoke with my builder on the phone (mainly about the suspension setup) and told him what I noticed and he said absolutely it is to be expected that it is making more power. Makes sense, I know that built bikes will produce more power in cold air than hot air, I've experienced that first hand myself. Will be interesting to compare the dyno #s

$50k? Please tell me that was exaggerated. How do you spend $25k over without a motor build? Also I have to say that EC intercooler is by far worth what their asking for sure. Think about it people were spending 2k on a kit that looked like a child welded it and a few leaky ones. So if I hadn't already went the route I went I would buy one for sure.

That's no excuse. There's plenty of people that will buy your current system. Remove it and get what you really want.

Turbo as you probably know my bike is at CMP getting the motor built and I wanted to give Travis system a try. So who knows maybe the next time I'm out here in Iraq that EC kit will be one of my purchases while I sit on my computer waiting on Drones to come down binge spending LoL

Yep that will do it LoL. Crazy to think how everything starts adding up and you don't realize it. I don't even want to know where I'm at and I'm willing to bet it will be someone that comes in here and say "Why didn't you just buy an H2R instead".
