depending on use it would be sweet. uses are pulling, drag racing, dyno queen.

If it is a street driver, I would just do an air to air and call it a day.

Air to water has a lot better heat transfer but to run it on the street, you would need to install a seperate radiator to cool the water for the ic which is just a big pita for a street driven truck if it is making south of 500 hp IMO.

Plus, I don't think I would want to mount an air to water ic in the front of my truck because it would block all the incoming air that needs to go through the radiator. In that case, you would need tp find an alternate mounting location for that (I have no idea in an OSB) then install the ic radiator up front. Then run plumbing and pumps and maybe a reservoir, which would total up to quite a bit more time and money for what I think isnt reasonable gains.

I'm not sure of it has an air to water or not. Haven't had the chance to nose around under the hood of one yet.

Oh, yes it would lower egt's more but for how long before the water is heated and not cooling as well I don't have an answer for that.

Yes the 6.7 has an air to water unit, and it would be easier to do than an air to air unit, just an idea I've been throwing around.

Most use air to water intercooolers in situations where space is at a minimum. The radiator for an a-w is less than 1/2 the size of an equally matched air to air intercooler.

Ive been looking into intercooling my e350. And in that application where room is non existant for a front mount and piping an air to water is the better choice.

Check out frozenboost.com they have some cheap air to water kits.

I just went on there My brain is turning.....
What if I were to buy one of the air to water coolers and plumbed the water into my coolent system (witch stays around 180*-200*), instead of mounting a whole new cooling radiator.
