only turbochargers need an intercooler, superchargers already pull in cool air, your conversion will cost more than the car is worth, if it is not done properly you could blow the head gasket and the bearings the first time it goes on boost

you don't technically NEED an intercooler but if you don't cool off the air charge that is going into the engine you will have insignificant power gains. also if you plan to turbo your car you will need alot more than a turbo and an intercooler. turbo systems get pretty complex, do some research, you will be surprised
