The logs in CSV format (excel) which I posted on N54tech.com show ambient & outlet temps by time & RPM.

There are a number of units with higher capacity but with my intended horsepower gain & desire to fit the cooler without cutting the shrouds or removing the bumper the ETS 5" unit was the best compromise. Install took me about an hour.

EDIT: Delta at the end of the run was 32 degrees.
Sounds like a good cooler. Did you notice any turbo lag at all with the larger unit? Having a larger capacity it would take a longer time to reach a higher pressure, but the lag might be imperceptible.
