Just curious, for any of those who said they had a vortech non-ic, how long has the blower been on your car, how many lbs of boost are you running, and what are your rwhp/rwtq numbers?

I wouldn't run ANY boost on the stock injectors and prolly wouldn't go more than 4 PSI on the stock fuel pump. Injectors and fuel upgrades are MANDATORY for a boosted application.

ive read of guys putting 50,000 or more miles on them, it depends on your motor and tune. Most basic vortech kits put you between 7-9 psi and roughly 375rwhp.

I ran non-intercooled for a summer before getting the intercooler. 8lbs

Put the intercooler and pulley on and have been running fine for 2+years still pushing 8lbs. I got it tuned at the same place you did, Pro Dyno.

If you cant afford to buy an intercooler you are nowhere near being able to afford supercharging your car. What happens when you blow your engine because of all the heat? Theres already the risk even with an intercooler. Then youl be on the hook for a new shortblock AND intercooler after youve learned your lesson.

The result you will get is that of much less power than if you were to have spent that money on heads/cams. This is because with heads and cams your engine isnt pulling tons of timing due to heated up air. Most of the gains you NORMALLY would see with an intercooler will be timed down by the engine's computer to prevent knocking/detonation. You need to buy an intercooler otherwise you will not be satisfied at all.
