|WillyT||Intercoolers exist for the exact reason you need one. Methanol is a stop gap.|

If you are running methanol and think you are having temperature issues, you have something else wrong.
If your person/company doing your tuning can't tell you exactly what is going on and why, find another one that knows what they are doing.

|lmr||Right now, I have no intercooler. I do have a dual methanol injection of pure methanol. I was just thinking is all. The 100% methanol was what it was tuned on. For those that are familar with FAST systems, does it monitor intake temps? I would like to see what kind of difference a 50/50 mixture would do..|

inline air cooler
If you are running an air to water intercooler there is a setup designed for the 03/04 Cobras called "killer chiller"

|lmr||I just didn't see where it would matter whether the dash cooler or an inline, it would still be the same load. The tuner had said just normal driving before making boost, the intake temp. was 140-170*. The dazh temp. is usually 42* and so I figured it would work better then air/air.|

|nolife||The AC system will generate more load and take up more power than you would get from trying to cool the air. It is not large enough or efficient enough. If you want to push that far and cool down the air, use N20 or methanol. A NOVI or just about anything Vortech except for an A trim can make enough power to put the integrity of stock 5.0 block at risk with no need for additional coolers.|

inline air cooler
On my mustang, I am using a Paxton Novi 2000. While having it tuned, there was always a worry about intake temperature. This got me wondering if anyone makes an inline cooler which hooks up to the ac system? So instead of running into the dash, it is piped into the inline cooler. I don't use the ac anyways and it has everything it would need except the inline cooler.
