A guy told me today that running a intercooler on a blowthrough setup isn't as critical as on a fuel injected setup,any thoughts on this?

True. But it's still nice to have even a cheap a/a. My non-intercooled sbf has been in the 8's with a blowthrough carb and E85. Guys out this way have been deep into the 8's without i/c's. I guess it depends on ur estimated power level or et's. Anything less than 1000 hp I'd run that cheap vsracing a/a cooler.

Yep. From what I've heard about a car out this way, a 75 hp shot was worth closer to 100 hp. The car I'm referring to is fuel injected but still runs a consistant 8.30.

For the best performance run a W/A intercooler if your going to run gas.
