It is always the case as long as they install the proper pulley along with it. I'd like to hear an example of when it wouldn't add more power...

Bolting on an intercooler to an engine without changing anything else is not going to make a HUGE difference unless there is existing */C heatsoak or KR issues. If there are no existing issues then the intercooler does in fact allow you to use a smaller pulley and avoid the dreaded KR issues, thus giving the bigger gains.

Guess I'll be the one to tell the guy there is no intercooler for the '00 and up Bonnies, without a lot of custom stuff on the radiator end of it.

Pulleys? What pulleys?

You have to remember that the W body is TOTALLY different than the 92-99 Bville or the 00-03 SSEi. Things don't fit the same even though we have more room.

On your generation, finding room to install the INTERCOOLER radiator is a real bear, but it'* been done.
