Default Has anybody Intercooled a 2000+ Bonnie?

Besides Intense........just wondering how the install went. I know most kits are set up to go on a GP. So I assume radiator, pump location will be different.

To my knowledge only 2 Bonnevilles have been intercooled. Both are 2000'*, one is BadSSEi the other is mine. BadSSEi was a custom intercooler install from the get go and has been running for a few years. Mine used our Intercooler Kit with the only modification being the cooler and its placement. I've been meaning to put pictures up of the install for a while now, just have not gotten the time to do it.

Seeing some pictures would be great. I have a chance to pick up one used and wanted to see if I could m ake it work with hood clearance and all.

Naah, if the mod bug had him by the jugular he woulda got the full IC. Not the half one. With the full one I could run a 3.0 pulley with no supprting mods. With the half I would go 3.25 at the lowest. In Merlins situation, rockers and all it'll be good. However, just think Merlin, with a full IC you can run a 2.8".
