Reducing air charge temps by 10 degrees will increase power by a minimum of 1%

1% not 1 hp, that would make more sense..

yeah really its more like 1% min 2% max depending on your other mods. That is how sidewinder noticed such a gain with his FMIC, they cool 24-31 degrees on average depending on size...

So you guys are saying 1% power increase with nothing else changing? I was thinking the #'s could be more because the 10 degree decrease or whatever could allow you to turn up the boost a little, no?

Not to mention on boosted vehicles they spool faster too
