Kenne bell debate

I've seen numerous debates on the 6 psi non intercooled and the 9 psi intercooled twin screws. Some say the 6 psi is safe, others claim the heat soaking makes it not worth it. Would like some more knowledgable opinions before I make a decision. I know an inter cooler is always better, but the $1000 difference plays a big role too.

I'm more or less concerned if the non intercooled one will function safely. I know it's a safe amount of boost, but will the heat be a big enough issue to cause problems?

With that small of boost level you should have no problems with heat.

That's what I thought too, but I've been told the twin screws soak a lot of heat, even sometimes when inter cooled.

The KB case is made from billet aluminum which disperses heat so heat soak is at a minimum , if you run the 6 psi you will be ok but I would definitely get the inter cooler setup so you can run more boost and make more power, if you buy the non inter cooled kit and purchase the inter cooler later you will need a new tune also so the money you would save now will cost you more later , get the inter cooler setup and tune once and be done

Also, if I did save up for the intercooled kit that's at 9 psi, would I need to get forged internals? I know I wouldn't need it with the 6 psi one.

Don't mean to hijack, but at what psi would forged be necessary?

Not to my knowledge, but it's well taken care of and should cause any problems with a conservative tune.

Old thread, but I was looking around at more stuff again and found AM sells intercoolers for s/c or turbos. I know I'd have to get piping, but would that work in place of buying the intercooled kit from kenne bell? I'm almost positive I could come out a lot cheaper this way.

The way I see it, Twin/Roots chargers are best used on heavy cars like the S197 that need more torque. A Centri/Turbo charger would be the optimum performer for your middle weight FOX4.

Here's what I did. Buying my KB in a few just doing everything else.

Afco dual pass HE, which is what you need for KB. Not a intercooler.

What you see cost me 200 bucks new.

Where do you get that? That sounds like what I'm asking for

So with this HE, you don't need the intercooled kit?

Yeah you do you just don't need the HE. You get credit for that at KB. You still need the pump and reservoir or do your own.

The Afco is the best for our application and use.

It's like boost a pump, KB sells it but it is junk.

I did it the right way and put dual cobra pumps on for 200 bucks.
