How does this thing do without an intercooler? Plans to add one?

I dig the simplistic look of this motor and the guys that run a simple pipe from the turbo to a T intake, but always wonder how high their IAT's are.

If you don't have a sensor on there you don't know. That's my story! I'm sure an intercooler would drop them some but for what I am doing there is no need. I'm capped at 13.8 pounds of boost and I shift at 6000 or so. Not running it hard as far as I'm concerned.

The CB performance turbo/fuel injection is not designed to go over 10lbs of boost. If you're boosting stoplight to stoplight an aircooled engine is going to melt down.
