I have a Banks Techni-cooler. It was expensive, but was easy to install. If you have a little patience and a saw-zall or cut-off tool, you can should be able to do it. You can also use super duty coolers, but the Banks cooler s more efficient and rated for higher boost levels. You would probably never need anything more than the SD cooler. You can get pipes from Banks or make your own. This place sells kits also. Ford Intercoolers

I wish it was that easy. Here in New England it doesn't even have to snow for them to salt to crap out of the roads. I wash mine weekly and just from driving 25 miles to work by the time I get there my black truck is white again. A better plan is to clean and undercoat it on an bi-annual basis if you can I think.

The also salt evey time the sky gets dark around here in the winter. I also used it to plow for many years.. I took the plow off when I installed the inercooler. The intercoller actually mounts where the plow frame was.
