    Compressed air coming from the S/C.

    S/C compresses it, it heats up, hot air=ess power than cool air.

    Intercooler cools the compressed air as to make more power.

    That's what I figured yet...I was under the impression that the air from the SC went into the throttle body next...no?

    In a stock ski it goes direct from the SC to the throttle body and then passes thru the internal intercooler that is mounted inside the intake manifold.

    We remove the crappy internal intercooler and install a bigger more efficient external intercooler so the air now goes from the SC to the external intercooler and then goes to the throttle body.

    See...now it all makes sense.

    I guess if I'da had a schematic or say an exploded engine diagram I wouldn't be asking such stupid questions.

    So uh...where can I find one?

    So what did the stock intercoler do? just cool the manifold in general.
