Intercooler Relocation??

My Banks intercooler is good, but in front of it is the ac condenser and it is huge and comes first in line and then the transmission cooler (I believe) comes second. Anyone move the intercooler first in line? Otherwise, what about moving the tranny cooler underneath with a small switchable fan and then allowing more room between the condenser and intercooler or putting a fan in beteen the intercooler and ac condenser with the tranny cooler underneath somewhere? Just thinking and wandering if anyone has fooled around with this. Thanks.

I don't think you have a trans cooling issue to start with, do you?

No, no trans cooling issues, but just wanted to get the intercooler out front for better air temp reduction and not adversely effect the trans cooling. Basically, I want the intercooler first and everything else afterwards. Just a thought. Was wandering if anyone ever moved it.

Only time anyone moves it is for an air to water intercooler. If you are looking for lower EGT's there are other, better options.

I figured no one had done it except in an original race type build. I am not really looking for lower EGT's, but just wanted to make full use of my intercooling for colder intake air. I have a 50-50 methanolol distilled water injection and it works incredibly well for power. I have nitrous and rarely use it becuase it is a wide open throttle thing and it is really unecessary. in fact, I am going to remove it and sell it. My knowledge base is from my twin turbo 98 camaro and my turbo 86 mustang svo. My truck runs great, but just wandered why Ford would put the intercooler third in line. I may move the transmission cooler to underneath one day to free up more space betwen the ac condenser and intercooler unless this would be a waste of time for the hassle versus the benefit. I live in South Louisiana and it is always hot and humid. Any suggestions are apreciated. I do not want to go air to water. Thanks. Enjoy the conversations in the least.
