I wanted to share my oil bypass and coolant filter setup with those guys running a Banks intercooler, because the boost pipe coming off the turbo takes up a lot of available space for this install. I contacted Scott Richards about using his kit that he sells on dieseloilbypasskits.com. He said he didn't think it would work, due to the size of the Banks boost pipe. I told him that I'd buy it and try it anyway. I really liked the water jetted "6.0" on the bracket...
So, the kit arrived, and I started laying it out. It definitely was not going to fit the original way it was designed. So, I made a phone call to my fabrication partner (Kelly Hatfield in Sun City, CA), and out came the welder... Don't get me wrong, Scott's kit is solid and very well designed, but it just wouldn't fit my rig with the Banks intercooler. Kelly got to hacking, welding, bending, and grinding, and the picture below is the outcome of the mad fabricator.
Thanks to Scott Richards for allowing me to hack up his kit and working with me to get the parts I needed. Don't hesitate to check out his kit if you don't have the Banks intercooler. Awesome stuff!
Let me know what you guys think...
