Installed Rudy's Cold Side CAC Pipe with PICS

Installed my new cold side pipe I ordered from Rudy's. Install was pretty straight forward, PITA to get the old one out and the new one in. Once i got the new one in, i had a heck of time getting the inter cooler boots back on the new pipe right off the inter cooler.. i ended up having to move the metal ring over and disconnect the boot from the intercooler to get it on. you can see from the pics what i mean about with the rings.

noticeable quicker spool up. havne't really had a chance to check EGT's while cruising.. but the little bit that i drove it today, it was at least 50 degrees cooler just cruising @ 60. My mom took it on a 200 mile round trip today to pull my brothers boat home from lake anna, 20' bass boat. 100 miles unloaded, 100 miles loaded.. mom doesn't know the difference, but she said the truck performed flawlessly. Running IDP's extreme mild with firmer stock lock tunes.

its a very tight fit... its definitely rubbing on the metal and causing a vibration i can hear and somewhat feel.. i'm going to need to stick something in between the pipe and radiator support. this is a quick/somewhat easy way to make your truck breath better.

You need to grind that lip off the support right there to the upper left corner of where the tube is rubbing the lip of the support and it'll clear just fine

I'm assuming you're talking about that little beige looking box. i'm not sure what its connected to. never really looked or noticed it. give me a few, i'll go outside and see what its connected to.

i got the rudy's pipe cuz it says no grinding required.. but, i agree, it looks like some grinding is required. i had a heck of a time getting the IC boot on.. would getting Diesel Site boots help ? i haven't tested my truck with a high HP tune yet with this... maybe 40-45 PSI. time will tell. i really dont want to take this suck back out just to grind it down cuz it was such a PITA to get in.. took 3 of us to get it in without grinding.

i just traced it out. its some sort of electrical connection for the vacuum lines for the 4wd system and the hubs. runs from the pump, up and across the top of the radiator, and down to the passenger side hub.

ah... makes sense since I have transfer on the floor... and the other one I saw was a guy with a real KR (not a clone like mine).

Dieselsite boots are great but your going to have an even harder time fitting them over the bead on that pipe. They are thicker and don't stretch the same.
Very well made boot though.

I had the same problem with my pipe.
The bead is formed with an expander die, unfortunately it's expanded so much that the pipe itself is now larger than 3" and then you have the bead ontop of that.

How much did this Rudy ic pipe cost and what's the supposed benefit? Increased airflow but what else? Is it worth it?
