I wouldn't consider NOT intercooling myself. Too much benefit from the coolers in my 02.

I think I would stay with the "problem" of the intercooler. The problem without the intercooler will be a bigger problem & you will be rebuilding the engine again.

That said what is your problem with intercooler? Hoses, leaks or ???
