3" Cold Side Intercooler Pipe

I think if you are good with a wrench, you could install it. It does help some, because its removing a bottleneck in the flow back to the engine.

Is it worth 200 bucks? IDK, its just a pipe. There isnt much to it. Probably costs 25 bucks to make. You would get more out of it if you are tuned with the deletes. But to spend 200 bucks for minimal gain seems silly to me. But to each his own!

I already bought AFE stage 2 CAI, spartan tuner, 5 inch downpipe back exhaust w/DPF delete. I just haven't recieve the exhaust and tuner yet. Already put the AFE on and I love it. I was just wondering about the throttle response.

Someone else said the throttle response was very noticeable.

It doesn't help the EGR, it helps cool your EGT's. It is definitely a worthwhile investment....and I would also consider doing the 4" downpipe too. You will really notice a difference with the two together.

I meant EGT. But after I get my stuff in those will probably be my next two investments.

Yeah, just a tube with three bends, two beads, and a weld joint. Good luck building that for the $200 they are asking. If it makes a difference, it is worth the money.

My father is a metal fabricator, i think i have a good grasp on how much this thing costs to make. I can guarantee its not 200 bucks. I understand its a business, and people need to make money. Im sorry but in my opinion its overpriced.
