Question Installing IC on an OBS

Any help is welcome....

I am installing an I/C from a 02 7.3 into my 96 f250. I ordered the techni cooler pipe kit from banks. Does anyone know if there is a lenth diffrence (shorter) where the pipes connect to the I/C, between the banks I/C and the stock 02 I/C.

Seems the only way to get the i/c close to the rad. support is to cut about an inch off of the i/c pipes that came in the kit. Anyone know?

I haven't used the Banks pipes to install one yet but I think the fittings on the Banks coolers come out farther than the SD coolers do. So if anything I'd imagine you'd need to get some longer boots like the stock Ford boots for it. When I had my site up I had a nice write up on installing them but it's not back up yet. I've installed quite a few with the kits I used to have so if you have any questions feel free to give me a hollar.

How much did the pipe kit cost directly from banks?

I have the dimensions (lengths and angles) of the pipes on my camera san disk card... unfortunatly I can't get them off the card since my camera is being repaired at canon.

Off the top of my head, I used
1 45deg tight radius tube
1 45 deg long radius tube
1 55 deg tight radius
2 90 deg long radius tubes

Is their much advantage to upgrading to a 6.0L intercooler or would a 7.3 work just fine. I have the banks kit on the way.

Curious, what did you pay for the banks kit? what all was included?
