Should I run a Intercooler?

Having a local guy build me a kit. Want around 600-625rwhp through my c-4. Streetcar that will be driven to the track. The problem I've had is some people said run intercooler, some have said to run a Snow kit with it instead of a intercooler.

The Snow alcohol injection should help prevent detonation and help cool the air charge alright, but I don't know how much as opposed to an intercooler.
A few months ago I drove down to CO Springs to Snow, and an employee (can't think of his name) spent lots of time with me explaining their product. He personally has a bunch of turbo motor / Snow injection experience. He or Mr. Snow himself I'm sure could tell you what to expect.

Year age I played around with water injection on high out turbo engines.
It worked great at prevent detonation.

The Aftercooler is used to cool down the temperature of the compressed air and really does help with HP.
It would be interesting to see it you could use both.

The other question is how much boost are you running?
That will make a big difference on choosing which unit to run.

It seem as if HP wise 20 psi non aftercooled verses 15 psi aftercooled are equal.

Hope that this helps
