depends on what your using it for
its better than standard but not as good as a front mount
but a front mount will have more lag

Some of the RTOC members complained on GTTuning's IC because it is too thick and there is not enough air flow to make cooling better as other double capacity ICs. In any case FMIC is way better than any IC placed on standard position.

Yes, but only on open roads during harsh winter. But you can solve problem by blocking part of the IC :D

the gt tuning double capacity intercooler came out on top of a test done on  the gtt! the test did'nt include front mounts though.

k-tec's is not quite as big & not as good either.

you could always mod the standard one by
1. disconnecting the thermostat and gluing the flap open(so you can see the fins on both sides)
2. running 2 big jubilee clips around the outside to stop the ends blowing off
this has been tested so far upto 27psi on a t28 with fuelling to match b4 det occured
p.s. its good on a budget

Even if the OE Intercooler is Strapped and thermostat removed and flap removed it is still no good for over 15psi as the cooling is to in-efficent for any more boost and a double cap interooler would be required and yes the GTTuning is a very good intercooler and came up tops on an RTOC group test.
