    Perfectly normal. When air is compressed it heats up. Thats why it gets so hot. The more boost you make the more heat you make.

    This is normal. I'm not sure about superchargers, but turbos can heat the air as much as 350 degrees. THis is why an intercooler is VERY important. As you compress air you also heat it up.

    Jerry,

    Did the watercooled RR SC housings ever work worth a damn?
    Seems like a good idea but I have not heard much about them.

    I never really heard much about them. I dont know if they work well enough to make it worth the $2500 price tag just for the housing

    I wonder if the Riva having more air flow will run cooler air.

    cooler then what? Not cooler then stock because the psi is higher. The more you compress air the hotter it will get.

    This is why Nitro keeps telling us that boost is not always better and that more volume "can" be better than higher boost.

    Man do we need a larger SC
