Need some advice....

Hey guys been awhile since I've been on here.......Afghanistan. Anyway, I,m thinking about putting a Intercooler/air to air/charge air cooler (what ever you want to call it) on my 97. It has a cold air intake and exhaust thats it, no tuner.....nothing. Basically stock. Will there be a noticable gain? In cooler weather the truck runs Soooo much better. I know cooler air means denser air, which means more air in the motor. If I go this route it'll get a tuner, nothing heavy just a little bump up. Opinions? Comments? Thanks guys...Bob

If you are stock, you probably won't notice much difference in power (actually may notice more turbo lag). The cooler denser air is more of a factor in gas engines. The big benefit for the diesels is being able to keep your exhaust gas temps down, especially when running a chip or larger injectors and towing. It allows you to actually use the extra power you have before backing out of the throttle due to high EGTs. Cheers!

I didn't even think about turbo lag...... thanks for the reminder. So I assume you dont have a CAC?

It helped me a lot while towing, but I'm chipped on the f250, and no gauges in my f350 to know much of a difference, but I really like how much longer I can keep in the throttle with a load and climbing hills, but yes you will notice more lag, and a slight loss in boost, I only lost 3, but she does fine with the split shots and tw tunes
