Are you actually looking for the water cooled aftercooler? If that's the case, and I am not sure there has been a redesign, but several Cobra afficianados have shown that beyond 8 psi, the aftercooler has too much pressure drop and no longer cools the air charge.

If I were to increase the boost on my '97, I would simply go for the standard air-air intercooler mounted below and behind the front bumper...

I'd have to agree with SuperG on this one...you're better off getting an air-air and then having someone custom make your piping...I would think you could have this done for around $2k or less (which is what a new system from Vortech will run you)...:thumbsup:
