installed a cold side cac pipe today

after the egr delete the intake elbow was not lining well with the factory pipe. the boot was a tad short on the verge of slipping. luckily the flo pro was delivered quickly and i was able to install it today.


unbolted the top support. there are a couple spikes that hold it in place so you have to gently roll it up after everything is unbolted. looks like one side was broken off by a ford tech when my radiator was replaced. pulled out the stock pipe and installed the new one. placed the support back over the pipe and made marks to grind. after a few times going back and forth marking and grinding everthing fit perfect. as a matter of fact the pipe lined up well with the intake elbow and no longer does it need a longer boot. buttoned everything back up. sprayed the ends to check for leaks. the two plugs needed tightening and that was it. just need a test drive now.

How was the install on the pipe? Can you install that without the EGR delete and intake elbow? I am waiting until I hit 125k miles before I do the EGR delete with Elbow. that is only 10k miles away I might just wait and do it all at the same time. Any noticable performance gains?

Why would you wait til 125k? You are already I've warranty and just imagine all the more crap that will be put into your intake! I would delete it the next free Saturday you have!

I didn't notice any performance gains.

Well my extended warranty I bought bumper to bumper runs out at 125k, my H&S turns OFF the EGR anyways, deleting it will just be peice of mind. So how was the install of the CAC pipe, egr delete plates and intake elbow?

install was pretty easy. just an hour or so. just remove bolts and grind. i didnt notice any gains because did so much within a weeks time.

i think a aftermarket cac pipe will fit the stock elbow. i thought i read it somewhere.

i normally do one thing at a time and get a good baseline. so i started out upgrading to the 300hd tune and felt the urgency to do a coolant flush since theres so much crap in my cooling system so did the egr delete. after the delete the stock cac pipe was not fitting well so i put this one on. now im ready for the flush. so unfortunately each mod didnt get the attention i wanted to give it before doing more.

anyways had turbo'ed motors in the past and noticed gains just by replacing kinked up pipes. this one is a no brainer.

onto the coolant flush and then a downpipe.

How are your ECT/EOT deltas? How long have you been running a coolant filter? Hopefully you caught enough stuff that you wont end up with a clogged oil cooler. Your degas bottle looks nasty.
