big fat intercooler

i just purchased a brand new banks intercooler with all of the goodies that go with it. i just finished tapping and installing the port for my boost guage on the high ram intake. i will install the intercooler system along with my ladder bars tomorrow. do i need to let innovative know about it? can eric do anything more after it is installed?

no, your new IC doesnt change tuning at all, just egt's. the banks cooler is a good piece, but i dont like how some of the tubes fit, i modded mine so they fit just right now.

look into the ccv mod, before you coat your IC fins with oil.

update

it is installed. my egt's dropped from 800 to 675 at the speed that i was hitting 800. boost was at 10, now at 8 at the speed that held 10. fuel economy seems to have increased. power seems to come on differently and smoother with a little more power.

crank case ventilation. it stops the oil fumes(blow by) from getting into the engine and coating the intercooler, piping, etc. with an oil residue.
