Banks turbo pipes

i have to opportunity to buy the banks turbo pipes with all hardware brand new, never installed with a 6.0 ic as a kit. My question is does $875 sound like a fair price and will the boost tubes need to be reduced to fit the ic

What do the pipes cost new? I would assume you would only need the correct boots to make a 6.0 ic work, but the ic alone can go for round 100-250$,

Not sure on that, the 6.0 ic is larger IIRC than the cooler banks offers for the obs, but not 100% on that, I have one in my garage I'm gonna use eventually, but that seems like a deal there, it is a complete kit rite?

Techni Cooler is comparable to the 6.0 IC. Gale claimed to have done it first and Ford "stole the dimensions" from him. Kinda bitter guy. I think the biggest difference is how they mount in front of the radiator. The tubes are mandrel 3" except the turbo adapter. Measure the 6.0's ports to see if they are 3" also. Boots can be bought from anyone, you just need 2 straight boots and 2 bellowed boots Flow is great and it's a little thicker making the trans cooler a slight issue. With the tubes should also come the trans cooler relocation mounts or you'll have to make your own. Here is a pic of the pipes in my bay:



I'll see if I can get a good shot of the IC tonight.

yes it is a complete kit, the guy bought it for just the techni cooler and wants to sell the pipe kit and 6.0 cooler to me....

Banks is Bullspit they said if i buy it seperate its $900 for the pipe n hardware then $900 for the ic

i was just wondering if i should act upon this or wait and buy the banks kit all together for 1400 n change but since you guys say the 6.0 ic is just as good ive got my decision mad. Thanks for all the input guys

Complete set retails for $1500. You NEED the trans relocation mounts or the cooler doesn't fit. After doing you will not be able to fit a winch bumper that isn't one of those $1800 steel set-ups. Plus you have to torch your front end for the big 3" tubes to pass through. Was scary but ended up ok. The thought of one torching the front support system and two slinging liquid metal back at the motor is hard on the brain. I used a restaurant style thick floor mat wet down with lots of water to catch the metal.
