Personally i would go with the blower, twin turbo's would be nice too but they are a buttload of money. You can det a kick ass blower for 3K, or even cheaper used. I would go with either a Vortech or ATI procharger, the ATI comes with a air to air intercooler, my friend has one on his 99 Cobra and it runs damn good, he has a Vortech S Trim on his 96 Cobra (Lucky ****ing bastard, he traded his 99 ning on a new Vette)

which is better, an air to air intercooler or an air to water(or water to air) intercooler?

i was watching a show on tnn on sunday mmorning last week and they put a vortech supercharger on a 97 mustang cobra and got the hp from 245 stock to like 425hp, i know they used the air to water (maube its water to air, but i dont remember)

I would have to say a Water Intercooler because it would cool the air better before getting to the intake thus making more hp

Well Kenny that depends on what you're looking for. If you want it to be a 'sleeper' you can quiet the exhaust note with the turbo. ;) However, if you're out to make a statement, the rumble of a nicely-cammed V-8 accompanied by a surging blower whine following the idle up and down makes my pecker hard just thinkin about it... :p It would be good for pickin up chicks too, they would think your truck is whistling at them.

Don't forget that nice whistle that the turbo makes when the boost starts to build. I like the twin turbo idea, but like Scott said, the cost would be tremendous and finding the parts would be next to impossible. The thing with a turbo is, if the turbo is large enough, the available boost is limited only by what your engine can handle. My SVO has o-ringed heads to handle the 18 lbs of boost it generates. And a air to water intercooler is much better than air to air, unless you can fit a really big air to air intercooler. The only issue with air to water, is the water is already running at whatever your engine temp is.

True Mazda unless you run it seperatley from the existing cooling system, small tank and pump with a feed and return line.

Correctamundo, cobra. I thought about that after I posted, just never saw anyone do it that way. Also should have said "o-ringed head" instead of "heads". I think I've only got one on the 2.3 :wink2:
