Imagine the power increases with just a blower overdrive pulley kit.

Only bad thing is I can see even more brand H bogans switching sides and wrapping themselves around trees now that Fords V8 and 6 are on par in terms of power potential and ease of mods.

No intercooler will let it down in the aftermarket scene.

But only dumb people mod their cars!

How many pounds is it running stock? I've heard 4psi getting thrown around. Surely a 6psi tune would still be considered safe. And even then I'm sure harrop or someone would design a w2a intercooler for them.
What are people winding up their supercharged V6 commodore engines up to without coolers? 10-12psi?

I hope I detect an ounce of sarcasm there.

Don't worry? I won't ask until I know I am within the ballpark.

sure, but then its not 'just' a pulley upgrade :P
and sure as hell won't be cheap.

the supercharged V6 motors probably run lower compression then the coyote, completely different ballgame.

I'm sure there will be some movement without a cooler, but its all speculation until someone does it.
