    Next week I am having a Kenne Bell 2.2 supercharger thrown on my 04 cobra. As im sure you all know they run pretty hot(will be around 18-19lbs on 93octane and some VP Octanium for piece of mind). I was just wondering what cooling mods people thought were must have, or that will help keep things from turning into a heat pump under the hood. Im planning on getting a dual fan heat exchanger(not sure on brand yet), but am open to other products that will help me out. Even if it makes a small difference i'm willing to entertain the idea of buying extra cooling mods. Any suggestions are much appreciated!

    U know that additive is leaded and will eventually destroy o2 sensors. Use torco instead.

    gords heat exchanger is a great unit and id go for the j2fab intercooler 1'' mods. pair that with a larger tank and you should be able to take those temps down.

    They don't run even remotely hot at those boost pressures compared to the 2.8L, 2.9L, 3.2L, and 3.4L at high boosts. For your setup a nice radiator, decent front mount heat exchanger upgrade of your choice and a bit bigger intercooler reservoir. You don't need a 10 gallon tank and you dont need the J2fab. Make sure when you move the bottom mount intercooler from the eaton the the kenne bell you make sure the its cleaned.
