Intercooler / 6.0 trans cooler instal pics

Heres a couple pics of the install.
I didnt remove the bumper as some do for the install. I used Banks techni cooler pipe kit. I had to buy the Ford factory intercooler boots, 3 1/4" to 3''. I also had to cut an 1" off the ends of the I/C pies and weld a bead around them to prevent blow off. The AC condesor brkts were shortened and straightened. The support bracket/ hood latch assembly was cut out and replaced with a piece of flat stock. Instead of bolting bottom support brkts to the rad. support, they were welded to the frame. Any questions, pm me, and I'll answer to the best of my ability.

everything removed


holes cut in rad. support


ac condensor brkts cut and straightend



flat stock used for the hood latch. I actually cut the top of the support and welded in the flat stock



1" square stock with a nut welded to it for the bottom I/C support. Welded directly to the frame.


I bolted the top of the I/C to the rad support...sorry no pic.

couple more pics....









A big Thanks to my friend Wes, who allowed me the use of his shop and tools.
Also, a thank you must go out to my org. friends who also helped with their knowledge when I ran into a problem.

I dont recall exact prices. I've had the I/C for about a year now. The pipe kit was around $600 with overnight shipping. Even though is a banks kit, I ordered thru Boyer Custom Trucks ( real nice people, and easy to deal with ). The two I/C boots from Ford were $55.10 each. i'll get some more pics of the engine bay Tuesday.

Thanks. Should have taken a few more, but you know how it is trying to fab, install parts, and try to take pics of everything. Especially running on little sleep.

Thanks sea71. Anything I do to her, I try to keep it clean and simple. I hate I cant use my top cover, to keep her looking stock.
