OBS intercooler questions

good evening all,

I am in the process of acquiring a 6.0 intercooler from a buddy of mine and I am in the process of figuring out the logistics of putting the I/C into the truck. I've done my research and I've read a few of the "how-to'" write-ups and most all of them are saying that I need to get an e99 intake spider. between having a little trouble finding them and wanting to make this as cheap of a project as possible, I am wondering, why cant I just invert the spider I have on my OBS now like this.

If I did this I could cut off the flange to the turbo and weld on a 90 degree exhaust pipe to route towards the I/C and weld an expander onto the spider to connect to the I/C piping.

Has anyone done this before? from what I can see it will work but then again I don't have everything together to mock it up and be for sure. I did move the glow plug relay from its pedestal up to right next to the alternator to get have it clear the I/C piping.

I do for see the I/C piping coming up to the spider possible covering the oil fill hole but that's not a big deal being as that's not used very much and a funnel can easily get around it probably. ill be doing a fuel bowl delete soon to clean up the valley. Just looking for some knowledge on this idea and maybe a "been there, done that" story about it. If anyone has an extra old style spider they're willing to give up cheap in case I jack mine up or if they have a e99 one for real cheap and save me the time of doing this. ( figure id spend 50 on pipe just to set the spider)

I was thinking about this very same thing just the other day, did this ever get done?

BTW an extended oil fill neck is available from ford $7 can't beat that.

I didn't do it but erics diesel did, he has pics further up the thread. I ended up getting an e99 spyder and doing it that way. I didn't want any steel pipe there that would rust so I used all aluminum.
