    the best intercooler is none, intercoolers retain heat

    bypass the intercooler and spray meth on it, that will solve all your issues its cheaper more reliable less restrictive and enables you to make more powah!!!

    I did some research and that is what I'm going to do. I bought an Aqua Mist kit with a low fluid level sensor.

    Decipha was talking about this for years. I saw one car that had a pipe made to connect the outlet of the supercharger to the return plenum on the intake. It ran like ~~~~. Way to hot of an air charge temp, timing couldn't be retarded enough to make it run good, car felt like a turd, and it popped the headgaskets. You'd have to constatntly spray the meth. Unless you want to tow a water tank behind you to hold your meth mixture, its just a stupid idea. For a car that runs race fuel and only runs for a 1/4 mile at a time, MAYBE you could make it work but for a street car, air to air intercooling is where its at.

    Build an intercooler and use the aquamist on top of that, when needed.

    Assuming a street car, you'll have a recurring cost running meth all the time, which will make it expensive in the long run. Air is free!

    Not to mention, an IC is "more reliable", since it does not depend on lines, a pump, nozzles, controller, wiring to all be in working order to bring your intake temps down (and therefore help inhibit detonation).

    I love my Alky injection system, but I think it would be a poor decision to run it alone on a forced-induction, performance oriented street car. I had toyed with the idea not long ago, but after thinking about it..nah.

    Btw, I you're wanting to do this anyway, I would at least get a flow meter and tie it into whatever engine management system you have...if we're talking about an SC, use the SPOUT plug. Pull 8 degrees of timing, should the system fail.
