Intercooler

Should I leave my vortech supercharger as it is without an intercooler or invest in one?

I believe you will make more power with an intercooler opposed to without one.

That is pure sexiness. I'm going to probably wait until spring since it's starting to get cool where I live.

IMO with more than 12psi or just if you want the blow off sound but need to convert the setup to blow through maf.

eBay $200 size 31x12x3, fits perfectly on the 98 Mustang.

My car:
$200 intercooler
$150 piping
$50 maf flange
$175 pmas maf
$75 silicone hoses
$25 clamps

This is the one most guys with Vortechs use. You lose I think 2-4 psi but you can just crank up the S trim a little more plus the cooler air means you can make more power with less boost anyway.

However, on a stock motor and a good tune you can run enough psi to max out the stock 4.6L internals without an intercooler.

This one looks safer than an eBay one. Thanks Scotty

You can look at the ebay kits too, its the same place though. Whichever price is cheaper go with. But that is the kit that almost everyone with a S trim and a modular goes with.
