    im looking in to having 2 intercoolers on my turbo build an air to air and a air to water. I know jackson racing supercharger has a air-water cooler and it fits right next to the plenum just filling up the open space on my 2000 civic. Do you see any problims with this set up? Do you think ill see any large benefit from this compaited to its cost?

    :werd: You're not going to get cooler than ambient.

    Most roots superchargers use water-injection; hard to fit any intercooler between the plenum and supercharger.

    Even if your ice boxin your intake charge youll never see the benefits in a street car. The ice will always need refreshed, and the few degrees difference wouldnt translate into any real world useful power, even with an absolute MAX effort tune.
