My thoughts exactly...

AA uses an intercooler, but also the piping is a lot different than a Vortech unit (used on JMW and Stickyfingas). Both of their kits stage 1 form dont use it due to small boost, 6psi and 8psi. Once stage 2 is introduced they both use an aftercooler (cools after the s/c before the throttle body). Superchargers also suffer from "heat soak". The added cooling at any boost level will help your reliability and also the power.
