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.
