the Vortech Power Cooler is a 42rwhp gain, just a lil food for thought. They claim up to 100hp gain but ive heard from numerous people that its 42rwhp...that would put you over 400 :)

On stock engine with good tune should reach 400 rwhp safely.

depends really how much your boosting
remember you also lose 1-2psi with an intercooler
and piping for it depending how bad the piping bends are you may lose more

considering your talking about a front mount air to air intercooler

if your running more then 7-8psi i say it'll probably be worth it
if your boosting 10psi like im thinking from looking at your sig then then it may be worth it

Cooling air after a supercharger does not increase power- it simply allows for you to run more boost without fear of detonation. Remember, if it has already been compressed, you can't magically inject O2 molecules into it (unless you've got Nitrous hahaha)

If you cool air prior to compression (such as with H2O/Methanol spray or CO2 or N2O jets) you gain 1% per 10 degree drop.

With an intercooler installed, you can run about 3-4 more psi safely. Each psi is 12-16rwhp. You'll also need to use a higher octane fuel (to be on the safe side). I highly recommend a tune at that point.
