Vortech S/C Aftercooler

Can you really run this supercharger safetly with the aftercooler? I mean would it really be safe to do?

The whole point is to make it safer as mad said its kinda like an intercooler is for a turbo is helps keep it cool

Alright, that really didn't answer my question. Obviously it makes it safer, but would anybody actually run it without an aftercooler?

You can run a turbo or supercharger without an intercooler/aftercooler. This will limit the safe amount of boost you can make and hence, your power.
