Not necessarily this one but the thunderbird SC engines were apparently intercooled and they used eaton superchargers. I don't think with my plans for my car I would see much use for an intercooler (not planning on a crazy tune) but for others looking for a cheap, reliable source of intercoolers we might be able to cannibalize thunderbird parts. They used the eaton M90 so its not like their system was different than ours. And if they work well then I might look into mounting one anyways (for both the bling factor and possible hp gain from tuning).

Has anyone tried using the thunderbird 3.8L SC intercoolers? I searched the forum but found nothing. THey're about 50 bucks used on ebay so potential savings are huge.

It looks like a different S/C. It might work but not without a ton of work
