and why it cost 1500-2000 more than the vortech

Also, dont forget you guys have real headers and an exhaust designed for the turbo (and intercooler). Most Vortech guys have not tuned their cars as well as you guys did with your kit. Not knocking you, its just that you guys went the extra mile in design and it shows in the numbers. Good job.

I just have one question.....the kit comes with an air to water intercooler. Now what would happen if you put an air to air intercooler on it. Thanks

3" mandrel bent stainless steel exhaust is suggested. Yo Dude Performance made my exhaust setup their site is www.yodudeperformance.com

as for running an air/air intercooler it would be much less efficient and you would have to have the piping bent and get into custom brackets to mount the intercooler as well as modification to the bumper and bumper support itself.

With the air/water you can ice your resevoir so the intercooler has ice cold air flowing through it. I am beta testing a NX cooler kit that will purge C02 onto the heat exchanger in the front bumper. I will post results once my car is finished ~ 9/15 from the new widebody, brakes, paint, and audio install.

It will debut at Nopi Nationals in September. I am still trying to decide on the paint color. Should be decided by monday so I can place my order with the BASF rep.

I am going to be meeting the BASF rep for central PA on friday I hope. Fox Marketing is working with them to provide all of the materials for the car. I'll be back in central PA starting the body kit the next 3 days so I hope to get to see thier sample book on friday. I want to do something that will grab attention but not look obnoxious.
