The intercooler he used does not have the best end tanks. But he made it himself in a rush and for almost no $. The only way to figure out if a different IC is better will be to gather and analyze the data (none available with this car).

I prefer few more fans while on the dyno...

Sorry to disagree but that looks like a blown headgasket to me.

It really dose look like you blew the head gasket on that run.Why else would it pop the cap unless it is bad.An I should add those are great numbers.But you added 4 psi an only made 11 more peak hp werent you at 533 before?What did you change aside from the intercooler?

Its an old cap that doesn't hold good pressure anymore. I also overfilled the res. this morning while it was cold.
Don't worry, I drove all the way home at 25 psi, just to take it easy on it.
