6.4 INTERCOOLER IN A 6.0
Ok everyone since my idea was derailing Adrian's thread on the MTW's Stage 3 Turbo I decided to start a new thread for everyone to voice opinions, ideas, and specs here.
My original thoughts were that due to the 6.4 using a compound setup that can flow almost double the psi of boost pressure than a 6.0 can in stock form than the 6.4 intercooler would be a good idea for a swap instead of having to go the high dollar route of a banks, spearco, or aem intercooler all of which will run you over $1200 to buy and install.
Now I know it would require a little fab work to make it happen and custom cac piping but I think this can be done and for a lot cheaper than an aftermarket route.
The 6.4 intercooler also has the cac inlet on the top and the cac outlet on the bottom forcing the air inside to use all of the cooling capacity of the cooler vs the 6.0 where the cac inlet is in the middle of the side and the cac outlet is directly opposite that of the inlet, thus not utilizing the full cooling capability of the cooler.
Now I don't know that this will be a better upgrade than say a banks intercooler kit but I strongly feel it would be a much better upgrade over stock. That and it would be much more cost effective over an aftermarket route as you can buy a brand new 6.4 intercooler from sunriseford.com one of our supporting vendors for less than $500.
Another thing that has me thinking this will work is that the 7.3 guys are currently swapping to a 6.0 intercooler because the cooler is bigger and can thus flow/cool more air than the stock 7.3 cooler can and is much more cost effective than going aftermarket.
Let me know any and all information to either uphold this theory or prove otherwise. Thanks guys.
