Default What size intercooler core to go with?

I'm looking into Air to Water intercoolers specifically the Frozen Boost and Cx racing units.

I know im gonna get flamed for not going with some triple throwdown Chiseled or whatever top of the line $2000 intercooler, but this is all I can afford and I have room for a large one so my thought is that if I get an oversized one it should work fine.

My question is about core size, what size do you think would be sufficient for 8-1000 HP?

Another question is, should I run a heat exchanger? Or is it unnecessary?

I was looking at a 4.5 gallon ice/water tank. Which intercooler water pump is the best?

I've heard the Rule bilge pumps work well, but there are a few different models out there.

Do you guys run the water pump the whole time you're driving?

Im going to be running a blow thru carb set up and id like to monitor air intake temps, I know Msd sells the sensor, but what gauge could I use to get the data?


Thanks

No idea what the Intake air temps were before but I doubt they were very high.

My car has always been E85 blow thru, after a few long highway pulls the intake was cold to the touch.

Im basically thinking about going intercooled now so I don't have to do it later when I go EFI. I was thinking of mounting the air to water behind the drivers side head light and make some kind of mount coming from the frame to hold it up since I dont have inner fender wells in the way.

Nah, I dont have the cash to do it properly so it'll have to wait until next year. I have the Vic Jr and msd 6010

Efi would add a ton of money to this build and im running out of shit to sell to fund it. LOL
