Is that intercooled or no? I can’t tell if the two wrapped hoses are water lines running to a cooler plate under it or if that’s something else... the section where the idler pulley bracket is bolted into.

Guess I could always look it up to find out. Lol

Yep... it’s in the new intake manifold they supply. 👍

I love the sound of that supercharger kicking in. I have a normally aspirated V8 and that supercharger whirl is the only sound missing from it.
What’s normal can vary. I think you meant naturally aspirated ;)

Geez man, how do you live with yourself having that one singular bolt on the driver side heat exchanger bracket stick out like that?! Lol

Lol hard to see in the gif what you're pointing at, the HE had to have a mount fabbed up because VMP didn't send one for some reason :p

@Jaguar Lol, yeah, that one bolt is backwards. It could be that there’s something behind it which prohibited the installation, but I doubt it. Either way, it should either be flipped or trimmed off so it looks better.

BTW, I worked hard on that gif. Haha It was the first thing that popped in my head as I looked at your pic and saw one side and then the other with that bolt just sticking out like that. Lol
