6.0 Intercooler with Banks Pipes on '96

After diagnosing multiple unrepairable leaks in my Banks Technicooler, I settled on purchasing a 6.0 IC from a junkyard to use instead of another Banks IC(too expensive!). I'll try not to forget to take some pictures, and add my commentary, as this is a popular addition/modification which seems to have some unexplained variables. I'm currently waiting on the 3.25x3.0 silicone boot to arrive (hopefully Monday), and someone to weld my mounting brackets on. I'm planning on using 1" square tubing welded directly to the top of my frame to set the IC on. I have some scap metal to use for the top mounting brackets. Other than that, I doesn't appear that I'll have to make any further modifications than what the Banks Installation Instructions already provide.

I would be interested in seeing the installation and gains provided by doing it.

The only problem I see with putting the lower mounting on the frame is that the upper mount is on the body, which is on it's own set of mounts. I beleive the deflection between the frame and the core support may be enough to damage the IC core over time. I would prefer to have all of the mounts on one solid area.

Good point. I hadn't thought of that. I am leaving some wiggle room in my mounts. I'm using 1x1 inch square tube, and the tabs on the IC are about 1.25" with the rubber liner. The upper mounts will be bolted up to the Banks mounts with a piece of thin plate bridging the gap. These are also on the rubber mounts. Hopefully, that'll do the trick to keep it in one place while still alowing for some flex between the frame and body.

Well, I completely forgot to take pictures last night when I put everythign together. I had to do a little more clearnancing for the large 60.IC, but everything else went in just fine. Really had no issues.
