I've ordered upgraded turbos, have Precision Raceworks stg4 LPFP & EOS intake manifold w/PI in hand, saving pennies for one of the crank hub options. Last night I considered that some upgraded charge cooling is in order. For those who have gone down this path, did you upgrade the intercooler or heat exchanger first? I'm leaning toward the IC first, would like some real world input.

If you've gone the IC first route, there are a few aftermarket parts all around the same price point. Build quality is at the top of my list, followed closely by price. Which one did you go with & why, if I may ask.

Anyone? Currently I'm lleaning toward the heat exchanger first, would still appreciate real world experience / input.

I can't comment on the cooling but I see often both are upgraded.
