Intercoolers are used for forced induction engine, your Ram is na so there is no need for an intercooler.

Gotta read the whole thing...it says "when you supercharge"

Some kits come with them, some don't. There are alot of them out there, do a little research and you'll probably find more than you bargained for.

Umm, I think he answered the question right.

I/C are used with turbo'd and S/Cs. There's a few different kind, but the two most popular is air to air and water to air.

You dont need a I/C for a n/a motor.

Yup, what BlownGP said above ^^^. There's no need for an intercooler if you aren't turbo'd or supercharged.

Yes, if you go forced induction then you should invest in an intercooler, it's cheap insurance and adds power, a nice combo. I'm a personal fan of air to air over air to water, only because it's a simpler install since it doesn't require a separate coolant system.

Most centrifugal systems come with an intercooler as part of the kit, but if you're just picking up a partial kit like I did then you want to invest in one. I bought mine from Treadstone Performance and they're good quality units without paying ridiculous prices. If you get a roots/twin screw then you don't have any option for an intercooler unless you get one with an internal heat extractor bar, but it's integrated into the unit and not upgradable.
