        I'd trade a 1 hour hand polish for some data logs.

        Hopefully they will have some data to share.

        I will say I run CSF stuff personally and it's top notch.

        We have a video published online with data from our dyno testing
        It's on our youtube page
        - I would post the link, but I don't have enough credentials on the site yet

        My fault, I should have checked to see if there was a vid.

        Also, you have enough rep to post links although policy is guest vendors can't post links. We'll let it slide in this case Click here to enlarge

        I should have posted this.

        Here it is:

        Data logging five continuous (back-to-back) dyno runs proves the massive improvements in lowering Intake Air Temperatures (IATs) when using the CSF High-Performance Heat Exchanger for the Mercedes Benz C63 AMG(S) (W205). After the 1st run, the temperature delta (ΔT) was 35.1℉ (19.5℃) lower in IATs of the charge cooling system. The CSF Heat Exchanger at an impressive 106.25℉ (41.25℃) vs. the OEM heat exchanger results of 141.35℉ (60.75℃).

        The CSF Heat Exchanger performed equally well on dyno run 2 with an impressive ΔT of 33.75℉ (18.75℃) lower IAT’s, showcasing its great resistance to heat soak compared to the OEM unit. CSF IAT = 119.75℉ (48.75℃) vs. OEM = 153.5℉ (67.5℃).

        Even after the fifth consecutive dyno run, the CSF High-Performance Heat Exchanger proved to be superior in both cooling efficiency of the water used to cool the charge air of the turbo system (resulting in lower IATs), as well as the continuous ability to resist heat soak compared to the OEM.
