Ive been browsing ebay a while looking at new intercoolers and have come across two that catch my eye.

that one.


Now onto the business, I'm not going after a 500hp monster sc like some of the guys out there, and driveability is important to me. So I ask will the smaller intercooler, the first link, be enough intercooler for me? I like the small heigh of it because I live in texas and want my radiator to get plenty of air.

Or should I go with the bigger intercooler and maybe have a heat issue with the radiator being blocked?

the first one says it moves 600cfm so that's over twice the rate of a stock i/c but the length might be a problem.the second one looks much better size wise so if i had those 2 choices i'd pic the second one because i know it would fit between the frame rails and still have room to plum the tubes.

But would the extra 4" of height block to much air flow to my radiator?
