mind I dunno what that does to your engine cooling.
AIUI, the point about increasing the intercooler size is that it allows you
to increase the boost pressure, which in turn may require pump (or ECU, as
may be) tweaks.
The converse point is that there's little gain from upping the boost without
increasing the intercooling.
