Inner coolers

Ok ya'll I've got a buddy who got his hands on a 2000 inner cooler for the 7.3L. Now he wants to install this on his 94-97 year body style F-350 duallie. Is this going to be something easy for him to do? Has anyone here done this? He is even thinking about swapping radiators also if he can get his hands on one. What do you all think?

Better think about replacing the turbo and using a wastegated one or the work will be all for nothing.

I have seen it done on the net without changing the radiator. Do a search for help. I have a Banks technicooler, and insallation was not easy. Good Luck!

I have never heard of this, why would I need to replace the turbo with a wastegated one because of my intercooler install? I ask because I am about to install a 6.0 intercooler on my truck.

you don't need to change the turbo.i have had a 7.3 IC for 4 years ran it for a year on the stock turbo before i changed to a 1.0 housing.the wife run with the 6.0 IC and the stock turbo no problem.no wastated turbo is needed.


their is pics in my web shot of both trucks getting the IC installed.no raditor to pull.it not like a SD.for the 6.0 IC the passager side is higher than the driverside so you have to cut that side higher and you will need the boots for that cooler.

here is a how to do the install on a OBS truck.it will take about 6-8 hrs.not hard just alot of time.

Maybe its due to the boost that you will lose going to a bigger intercooler. I dont know about the tubo but maybe the wastgated turbo makes more boost?
