After I installed the Jonny Tig intercooler system and his polished aluminum high performance Cold Air Intake....my car reacts as if it?s a true race car, crisp and fast!! I mean the Stinger is already a high performance sports car but Jonny Tig?s performance parts are simply amazing. They are designed specifically for waking up your Stingers full potential. I?m so impressed with his craftsmanship. Can you tell? Lol.

This guy is having an issue that is not something related to the JT intercooler. LOL

He also talks. A lot. That video just took 10 minutes that I'll never get back....

Laymans breakdown is this... a turbo charged (forced induction) engine gets packed full of air when the turbos boost. That air, as it's being compressed in the intake system, heats up. Hot air doesn't combust as well as cold air. You can also get more cold air into the cylinder.

So, the bigger intercooler allows the air to cool to a colder temp before being pushed into the combustion chamber for more power!

^^^^so very similar to the "hot air" intakes that alot of (me included) folks used. True cold air intakes were located near or where our intercoolers are! Makes sense, thank you!

False. His oil issue is completely unrelated to the JT intercooler install.
If you read the comments in the video you will find the reason of his oil leak.

Anyone running the Agency Power intercooler? I'm thinking about buying the black one.

Check this Youtube vid out on it.

Nice. However I've heard from another member that got the same pipe, that fitment was horrible, the outlets didn't match and the BOV sat too high and touched the engine cover.
To top it all off, the inside of the pipes had a lot of welding debris that would have easily gotten into the compresor turbine and damage it.

I have a drummel to clean up the inside, there's a guy here in the Phoenix area that is running this an he's had no issues. I was going to buy Ultimate Performance FMIC but it doesn't come with this T-Pipe, The only FMIC system that does is Jonney tig, I cant drop almost 2000 dollars on his system...
