i think that a intercooler with a pwrdyn is a waste of time!

the best thing would be to buy a aftermarket ecu, and not wary about the intercooler or reg

agreed, wouldnt go an intercooler. Powerdyne doesnt heat air up that much.

Another vote for no cooler.
Belt driven impeller and low boost means it really won't heat up much.
Maybe go a water injection setup if you want some insurance just in case, but I'd more likely just get a temp sensor in the intake and keep an eye on the temps.

Yeah. Agreeing with no cooler if you are only running 5psi.

If you can afford it, go with the water injection, but as SteadyED said, its not a must running low boost.

Its like a stealth alternative to an intercooler. I don't know exactly how it works, so I'll let someone else explain it.

It sprays water into the intake. It cools the air down and slows the ingition so less chance of detonation. You basically rig something similar to a wiper jet bottle to a hobbs switch so the water starts spraying when you go full throttle.

Most of the CAPA supercharger kits use this instead of intercoolers.

I know it was installed with my Vortech instead of a cooler.

A cooler is on the list of things to go on soon (hopefully) though. :)
