Intercooler bypass tube

How much higher would the temps be do you think? Would the turbo spool that much faster? Came across this and never seen this talked about here so figured I would ask since I am curious

Im not sure but there will be a noticable difference. Especialy if you still have te EGR still on. The intake temps will be very high and will limit your truck cuz of the higher intake temps....

wonder if you did the bypass tube and tapped it for water/meth injection

The intercooler is a restriction in the air flow path however the cooling effect and the resulting increase in air density more than offsets that. If you replace the intercooler with the bypass pipe and use water injection for cooling the air then you get the high air density without the restriction of the intercooler....until you run out of water. You should only do this mod for applications where you want max power for short periods of time(drag racing, pulling....) and you need to use it with water injection.

are you talking about running a short pipe off your turbo straight to your intake manifold?

if so good luck with that for daily driving, thats like people trying to run V mounted intercoolers in traffic on a hot day. talk about heat soaked. I think this is something for the track use only. you can see his pipes are still in there. maybe he just slips the i/c pipes off and throws this thing on there. im sure the spool up/ power would be right there, but you have no cool charge so like said before your intake temps would be insane.
