that is true 007 sir, what i meant is there won't be a drastic reduction in boost, there will be a reduction in the boost number, but to compensate for that the intercooler is to be added which will cool the air better, resulting into better performance, all this is theoretical again, real life situation will obviously differ.
"boost" is a number you measure at the intake manifold. with electronic controllers, the ECU does whatever it takes to achieve that number at the manifold. in reality, you are blind to how hard the compressor is working to achieve that number.
one should compare the wastegate signal vs boost with and without an intercooler to see what kind of effect it has in the overall scheme of things.
read this through: Intercooling
