      i would imagine you would get a torque improvement due to colder intake temps

          Would see good gains depending on what cooler, but buy your cooler new just to be safe mate!! And get the forge one

                Should be good to go mate, if your buying used, make sure the core is in good condition.

                  Intercooler will not do any power gains on stage 2 car as intercooler is not used in the mapp og stage 3 car there they use the gains of the interooler, it will suck more cold air in,

                      surly lowering intake temps would give you a power gain and at the end of the day your ready for stage 3 lol

                          It will not be noticable, the main diffrance is in the intake temp, but as soon as you get the stage 3 mapp then you will feel the diffrance
