    So I'm debating on the idea of supercharging my stock motor, but the blower requires a intercooler. Does anybody know of any good sites or have any write ups on installing a intercooler on a 97 gt? Other than the possibility of buying the blower (which may not be the smartest since the engine has 241k) I can also go the 4v route (which is my preference). What would you guys recommend? Also this car is going to be autoX'd so keep that in mind; im looking to run 320/350 rwhp

    any reason it requires an intercooler? They are certainly needed if your going for high HP but you can get plenty of power off a non-intercooled kit and there is always the the addition of meth to cool it during WOT.

    I think it is required for the blower. It has a stegmeier stage 3 port job done to it. Also any tips on the mileage since my 2v has over 240k? I just found a 4V with 78k that I'm waiting to hear back on price

    do you mean this one?

    With it being a roots style and mounted to the top of the block I am pretty sure that there is no way to intercool it although I am by no means the expert. I know these suffer from heat problems but that was just the down side to the design was heat soak.

    but how would this do on a 241k engine?

    Im not familiar with it, but if it wasnt intercooled originally, you'll have a hard time adding one. If it was originally intercooled, then it may just need the intercooler replaced. How easy that will be to find is hard to say.
