Proper installation of stock IC blockoff
I know this has been mentioned a lot on the forum over the past years, but we have a bunch of new members so i just wanted to offer this installation tip.
When going with an aftermarket intercooler and you are installing your stock intercooler blockoff plug be sure and run a bead of black silicone around the mating surface of the plug. Do not rely on the O ring to seal it properly as it won't and you will suffer from a boost leak.

How many of you are running external intercoolers and didn't seal the stock IC blockoff with silicone?

Damn you are reading my mind....
How does the stock intercooler stay secure?

It's more 'stuck' in there..And it's clamped by the same clamp that goes around the I/C b/o.. It's just that the pressure on a little blocking plate has a much greater effect than on an entire cooling core. Also, the air is flowing through the stock intercooler compared to the air being pushed into the stock I/C b/o and rebounding back and forth through the manifold.

The air coming out of the supercharger is compressed and will flow well thru the 2.75" outlet.
Feed that supercharger all you can and you do that by running a 4" intake
