Intercooler!

Just got an intercooler and all piping from a SD. Will all of the piping from a SD work on an OBS? Will new boots be required? I kind of want to buy new boots anyway. What is the average time for install? Thank you!

Do you have a E99 intake spider as well?
You will need to cut/weld the Superduty intercooler pipes. Hot side should line up reasonably well as is, but cold side needs to be clocked if i remember correctly.
You will also need to notch your radiator support to allow for the intercooler.
If you haven't done an install before set aside a weekend for it. It can be done in a few hours, but there are always unexpected things that will pop up.

Where can I get the spider? Is it part of the intercooler piping? Welding the piping? How difficult is this thing?! Haha thank you for your input

By cutting and welding, I assume you mean, cut the piping shorter and weld it back together?

Junkyard of the forum is your best bet for the intake spider. Here is a pic:

By cutting and welding, I mean cutting the pipe and re-welding the two sections back together at a different angle. You may want to pick up some 3" exhaust tubing to use a filler pieces if need be.

Ah I understand now, how much does that usually run price wise? It just so happens the donor vehicle I am buying the IC from is a 99, how do I tell if it is an E99?

Intake spiders usually run $150 or so. I've seen them go for more, and I've seen them go for less.

Easiest way once you have the intercooler and related plumbing pulled off would be to measure the intake plenums.
E99 will have 2" diameter plenums. 99.5+ will have 3" diameter plenums.

Will the spider from a later 99 look like the spider in the pic posted above?

Yes it will but the ports will be 3", not the 2" that our plenums have. Tylmar and Banks make spyders for our trucks but the SD pipes will need even more MODing to fit the Tylmar and the Banks is just plain EXPENCIVE.

Here are pics of the intercooler! Does it look to be in pretty good condition? I don't have it in my hands yet, I am picking it up this weekend. You guys are making this project out to sound like a PITA! Haha.
