Little late to the show and tell but, here is our Level 1 fully intercooled kit

The Active Autowerke Supercharger System includes a front mount air-to-air intercooler system with a separate oil cooler for the supercharger unit’s independent oil system. Our Supercharger Plenum has been designed with eight high-flow velocity stacks, and large three inch intercooler piping to supply the cooled air.

Our level 1 is powered by an HKS GTS8550 Supercharger Unit mounted with a custom CNC’ed bracket that uses a dedicated drive belt system, while eight high flow fuel injectors are used to supply the additional required fuel. Active Autowerke’s Performance Software, available for 91-93 octane, race gas, and octane levels unique to other countries, is carefully calibrated, and is at the heart of the system to provide an unparalleled driving experience. Keeping within the factory’s OBDII parameters, the Active Autowerke Supercharger System ensures consistency for everyday driving.

Hard to dispute the ESS VT1-535 systems. There's a ton of them out there and they all provide consistent results and plenty of bang for the buck.

VF-Engineering's VF540s were released a short while ago, we should be seeing more of them installed shortly.

We had to rewire the Bosch water pump as it was incorrectly installed. Basically the water in our air:water cooling system was not circulating. 484whp wasn't bad for a "non-cooled" run

The +520whp Eric ran after the fix was more like it though

My VF620 put down 510 at EAS at 90f. Car is stock otherwise. All cars will vary slightly as always.
