Can you just put a intercooler in without having a turbo? If you can, how much would one run for a 97 Tibby FX and what kind of gains could you expect? Thanks for the help

Nope, intercoolers are for turbo cars only.

Their purpose is to help cool the air down after the turbo heats it up so much. It would be useless and would severely hurt air flow on a non-turbo car.

Yep, But you can do this

You can run a Turbo without a intercooler, but at low boost.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/guns.gif width=33 height=16 border=0 align=middle>
