I was presuming that the fuel economy would go up with it like that but havent proved it to myself yet.

If you have a scan tool of some sort you could experiment with it and see what I mean.
I'll have to play with it.
Just seems counter-intuitive to have an intercooler.
must be limits (as you said) to intake charge temp.

Interesting... read this post. half way down it mentions a power dropoff after 90*f... This coming from Cummins according to the poster.
