Those oil coolers are not the best idea for trying to keep temps low. Your oil cooler becomes a water heater. The water to air intercoolers can be very efficient and would be effective for centrifugal superchanger and turbo applications. They just add quite a bit more complexity and more weight as you need an intercooler heat exchanger pump relays possibly fans and a reservoir tank for the fluid.

An FMIC might lag more however that would easily be overcome from the gains by getting cooler air. Just do it right and you should be fine.
bigger is not always better if the inter-cooler is not large enough or not enough air flow it will heat soak. if the inter-cooler is to big the pressure drop across the core will be huge and make less power then a properly sized. with your current inter-cooler if you can do a couple on boost pulls back to back and touch the cold side of the charge pipe and its warm to cold it should be fine. but no

yea I can and I am getting bigger radiators for it the main radiator will be upgraded he already has an upgraded heat exchanger for the water to air intercoolers. jkuchta the stock radiator setup is air cooled but the oil cooler is actually inside the radiator its a setup similar to the 300zx setup sold by spl httpwww.splparts.commain4index.htm then go to z32enginecooling and its the McCulloch setup

Supercharging is based off the intake side which means i do not need to do pipework just making flanges with pipes. There is a perfectly substitutable flex pipe in the marine world that holds up to70psi of boost and has good flow. Albeit
