Well for one thing it's even riceyer than my unpainted body kit. It will probably give u even less hp too cas the air has more bends plus the intercooler to get sucked through before it gets inside the engine.

Honestly that is gayer than the rainbow. Why not get a boost gauge too, just dont hook it up.

Intercooler for a turbo: cooling down ridiuclously hot, pressurized air

Intercooler for an intake: cooling down already cold air and probably losing you power

I know your a newb man, and sorry we're so harsh. haha i think i asked the same question as you, but now you know: Intercooler + Intake = Rice Factor off the charts. Seems like a good idea, but dont do it man.

this idea is a waste of time and money and the amount of money u spend on a intercooler u can get a cold air intake probally make more power.

Do you have a turbo car, or are you just trying to further cool air in an N/A car
