    So forced induction will increase my engine temps correct? If so, whats the best way to deal with this? I like to get a fluidyne but shitz they cost a lot! Any other recommendations??

    yes, but its not enough to matter mine runs 180-190 with stock cooling in heavy traffic. I think your thinking more of air temps.

    The air temps will pull about 50hp with a safe tune.

    an a/a or aftercooler(vortech) is definetely worth the investment. or even meth injection is another option to help with temps.

    A good aftermarket radiator will be a smart investment. I run the be-cool direct fit (yes it is $500) aluminum, 180 stat, high volum water pump. My car will not overheat, period. No intercooler.
