I am going to be installing a Vortech V2 S-trim with an intercooler. Is it necessary to run a BOV or BPV? If they are not necessary, what are the pros/cons (if any) of using them? Tried searching on this but couldn't find an answer.

Definitely install the bypass valve. It helps prevent compressor surge which could, possibly, cause damage to the supercharger. I have a Vortech V3 on my Marauder running 10psi. I hear the bypass valve working quite frequently, such as when I chop the throttle. In such a situation the throttle body slams shut and all that pressure would have nowhere to go except back through the compressor if it weren't for the bypass valve.
Im piecing the kit together using the $1500 supercharger thread and want to make sure I have everything I need.
Hey man if you need help piecing together your setup let me know. I pieced mine together for right around 2100 bucks. That included, the BOV, powerpipe, intercooler, tb and plenum and fuel pump. 1500 dollar set up can most def be done I just wanted the extra's.

When I converted to a blow thru maf, I made my vortech mini race vent to the atmosphere. I got a 2 core procharger intercooler and a intercooler pipe kit off of ebay. The kit came with a pipe that had a flange for the valve already welded.
