BD intercooler Pipe review
Im normally not one to get on the forums and do this but for this I fear that I have to! The BD intercooler pipe is a piece of crap! Ive been running it on my truck for a couple of months and had nothing but bad luck. The pipe has a HUGE design flaw and that is that they made it a two piece design and the boot that holds the two pieces together always blows off and it just so happens to be that its very hard to get to...with much swearing and a swivel socket it can be done but a couple times I just re-pulled the whole rad support (the boot has blown 5 times) Ive waited so long to ***** about this because I wanted to rule out the possibility of me just being an idiot and not being able to hook two pipes together. The dang thing has actually stranded me before (thank god I was prepared with tools from the previous stranding experience) while pulling a heavy trailer. I even went as far as to weld a bigger lip on the pipes and weld a support brace so the pipe couldnt flex and it still blew off...
this is on stock turbos. I apologize Im sure this seems very scattered but it just blew off again and Im pissed..I actually just ordered a new dirty diesel pipe so I wont have to deal with this anymore. And yes the pipe did provide a noticeable power increase and egt drop but thats all I can say for it
