Banks intercooler ?'s

I bought a banks intercooler for my truck today. It is used but seems to be in good shape. All I got was the intercooler it's self no piping or the high ram. My question is will this intercooler work with my stock piping or am I stuck with a real big paper weight. Thanks in advance for the help.

I'm pretty sure the Banks TechniCooler uses larger input and output piping than the stock but I am not sure. An easy way to tell is to take off your hot side CAC tube (very easy, takes 5 minutes) and see if it will hook up to the Banks unit. If it does also check the cold side because it could be a different size. Cold side takes a little more time to get off but its still easier than pulling the whole intercooler and finding out that it doesn't fir. You just need to pull the intake and you'll get that cold side CAC right off. Good luck

The Banks IC has a 3.5" inlet and outlet.
I would shop around for a pair of 3.5" to 3" hoses.
If you still have the OEM plastic cold side pipe ('05-'07) you will also need to replace that with a '03-'04 metal cold side pipe.

I have the banks intercooler but replaced the 3.5 inch tubes with No Limit 3 inch tubes, I just got some Vibrant 3.5 to 3 inch reducer boots.

I have the metal tubes on both sides. Will there still be much benefit to running the intercooler with stock tubes and reducer boots.

You will have better throttle response with a factory size tube than with the banks tubes.

Well I took a look to be sure and I don't have the metal cold side pipe. I still have the plastic one. If anybody has one laying around shot me a pm with price.
