Inner Cooler Install on A 96

Finally got around to putting the inner cooler in on my 96 F-350. Have had the parts for almost a year. Got the 6.0l cooler for free, the E99 spyder for $100, the pipes for $200, 2ft piece of silicone hose for $50, and 1 factory hose for free.
The disassembled front end


The pipes and hose


The cooler


Core support marked for the inner cooler


Brackets made for AC condenser



Spyder Installed


Support Straightened


Brackets paint for final install



Cutting the holes in the core support





Test fitting the cooler








Brackets welded and painted



Had to have one pipe fixed.


Final install of the inner cooler











Still have to install a couple of clamps, Mount the trans cooler and put the front end back together. More pics to come

nice job man, i have a inner cooler as well but was wondering about a trans cooler as you said you were mounting one, where at cause i read on a different thread that it was difficult to mount because of lack of space, details on how you plan to do this would be much appreciated.

Figure the trans cooler is gonna go on the headlight support that the grill bolts to.

Trans coolers fit fine, when you go to a bigger trans cooler, you just cut the center out of the header panel

welders arent that expensive Kris.... saw a 110v lincon MIG welder at home depot with the gas hook up for like $550. small stick welders are like $200 or less

intercooler looks great... i like how you took the time to mount it properly, was there any way to mount the intercooler higher to allow more air thru the grill to get to it? or does that make the pipes come thru to high?
