zoodad works for me!

well, i finally did it. i noticed a big drop in egt's when i installed the intercooler. i did the zoodad last weekend and now my egt's are 675 at 75 mph. that is while running erics stud tune. they started out at around 900 degrees, dropped to a good solid 775 to 800. after zoodad they dropped to 675. i am sure that winter helps some. it is finally chilly down here. it got to 24 this morning. oh, side note: if it is below 80, i am freezing!!!!!! lol.

So if I'm reading this right, you noticed almost the same drop in EGT from the Zoodad as you did from an aftermarket intercooler? What kind of drop did you notice when you got rid of the EGR system? 675 while cruising down the highway is good! Have you towed with it yet?

Mine runs about the same or cooler at 75-80mph. I really have to be pushing it up a mountain grade to see over 1000 degrees even briefly. Currently running a looney tune.

zoodad mod
Scroll down and will show you how to take grill off, then its just cutting a hole in the front radiator deflector.

I have found a dremel with a spiral zip bit works best, pull back rubber cover between rad and front clip so you can stuff the intake plenum with a towel, then just start cutting away. Take a sanding bit to clean up the edges, pull towel out of intake and vacum up dust.

yes. 3,000 to 3,500 lbs on stud tune in the flat lands of florida and it did not change it.
