Have to add the cooler to the shopping list!

I don't think I ever saw a stainless steel intercooler , but I would imagine that they would be pretty heavy . When I made my intercoolers I used Bell Intercoolers for my cores and they added what they called a marine protective coating to them, I have run them for 3 years with no problems but I boat in fresh water .

I don't know what brand to use but you would still be better off running an intercooler, in my opinion.
