Spearco Intercooler Install <Pics>

Some pictures of the install, took like 2 hours but I am slow cause I just finished working from 1045pm-8am. I almost dropped the new intercooler like it totally slipped out of my left hand and was heading corner first into the cement but i caught it like a foot before the floor had I take off the hood latch to squeeze it in and had to angle the I/C at a 45 degree angle. After seeing the oil drip out from the stock IC I think ill be doing a CCV mod in the near future after i look into it some more. Hardest part was putting on new boots and squeezing them in lol
Old bottom boot (CAC to intake manifold)

The drip (about 90mins of draining)

Stock IC gone

installing "z" brackets (stuck foot in picture for refernce on where it is, the install picture sucks from Spearco)

Fully installed

wow nice pics how does it drive ? I thought they changed the ccv so we wouldn't have these issues like the 6.0L? I wonder what what the turbos look like ?

There is nothing wrong with a bit of oil going back into the engine.

i think the concern is the same we have on our lightnings, oil coating the fins of the IC reduces its effeciency
