Banks techni-cooler

Hey guys i am getting ready to install the techni-cooler system within the next few days, and wanted to make sure it's going to be a pretty straight-forward install. Those of you that have gotten to your intercoolers before all I need to do is drain/remove the radiator, and intake assemblies to get to the intercooler correct? Is there anything I should look out for?

I got it from autoanything.com it was the same price pretty much everywhere. Everything came out to around $1225. I looked at other intercooler systems but nothing came with piping and the intake all in one kit. Plus after doing all my research I felt there kit was top notch for what I wanted.

i installed mine about 3-4 years ago on my truck and its straight forward. the directions were pretty good. just becareful when installing the intake elbow( red piece) they give you studs that thread into the stock intake manifold then nuts on top, just dont over tighten it or you ll strip it out

it is straightforward, u dont have to drain your rad or remove it. just the upper rad support bracket and boost tubes, loosen the bolts and slide it out from in front of he rad, should come with good instructions. if not go to the banks website and download a set

I got to install it today and very happy with the purchase. The only unexpected problem was my diesel site coolant filter could not be put on correctly because the intercooler mounting brackets were different from the factory one. Temporarily its tucked down between the pipe and fan shroud.

Yep, you'll have to rig up your own mounting bracket for the coolant filter. Some people just use longer bolts with a bunch of washers as spacers to move it out farther.

How much of a difference can you see with this upgraded intercooler? weither its power or temps. Is it worth the 1200 bucks?
