BBK is a must to get full potential of the SC. Track use was my main concern. Here are the positive of having the SC: low end power. I'm a manual, and now i can stay in higher gear in more places (like no need to go down to 2nd anymore, and 4th is more useful). The only real issue is temps... she does get hotter than stock. normal driving, there are no problems, but once on track, yea, you see it...
and you have the Intercooler already, are you hovering at 270 - 280 temps? How high are we talking about?
Yep, agree, BBK for a S/C car would be recommended.
