how to keep a jrsc cool

hello fellow focus enthusiasts i was wondering how to keep the jrsc cool?
there's a few ways i know of like the wmi but people say they run out quick and honestly kinda scares me as i have read people having to rebuild or replace their engines due to the kit malfunctioning.
the idea i had was not trying to put an inter cooler in but making a recirculating oil system for the supercharger itself like a oil pump that pumps it to a holding take after it runs through the oil cooler and pumps it back to the s/c kind of like what the water does to the engine which would cool the s/c in term making the air cooler. has anyone thought of this and have tried welding brabs somewhere on the sc to make this kind of setup? just had an idea not sure it would work let me know what you all think!!

There is no way to keep it cool , the jrsc is very undersized and you wont cool it many things have been tried

The powerworks has the same issue and it has an intercooler built into the intake and it still runs VERY hot intake air temps

Im going to be running wmi. I have just purchased the kit and am looking forward to see the results. It might not be perfect but it should help.

Look into a D.E.I. Cryo kit. You can cool down the intake air and the fuel. Not cheap.

When I had mine rebuilt by Stiegemeier I opted to try the venom cooler, figured it couldn't hurt. Have only had it for a couple weeks now so I don't really have to much for you as for how well it works.

If your adding cooling methods you also need to change the tune in some cases drasticly , you never want to change the tune by adding or removing fueling tho , if your WMI or what ever else your trying to use quits , blows fuse , runs out , fuse blows , pump locks BOOM !

You not going to change the actual IAT between blower and piston much , you may cool the air going into the SC a little but not enough to make a difference vs cost

I will try and get some pics in the next couple days if I can but between work all week and getting the car and myself ready for focus rising I can't make any promises.

I can tell you I ran the lines to I guess you could call it a re-circulation or bypass hose that runs from thermostat housing straight back to the water pump, runs along the back of the motor by the fire wall.

I wanted to stay away from meth for exactly the reason tom explained. Running the venom cooling by no means is the solution to the excessive heat problem these kits produce but it should keep the snout at a decent constant temp. It would prob be more beneficial to run a separate coolant tank, pump, and small rad just for the blower but I think it would be more hassle than beneficial.

When I was getting tuned at Mcnews they created the tune and then I am running the WMI just for safety. We tested it at Mcnews and in back to back runs with the WMI on IATs dropped 30 degrees. I am happy with that result.
