intercool or meth inject?

what would be the best method of cooling down a SC. meth injection ( we see kits for $300 ( - so called rpm window switch ))

and we see intercooler set ups for about 1500.

which would yeild more power?
pros and cons to both?

Intercooled is a far more consistent means of cooling the charge. Plus the long term effects of meth aren't really known. With that said, I run both on mine.

Hehe.. you guys are harsh :hihi:

One thing about the intercooler is that it keeps the intake charge cool earlier, so you can adjust your a/f and timing to take advantage of that.

I'm guessing that peak power could be close between the two. And that the intercooler can give you more power earlier under the curve.

Torque wins races, and all that.
