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.
