To everyone that has the Banks TechniCooler; how did you modify the A/C filter to accomondate the Banks boost tubes? In the instruction manual, it just tells you that it is "necessary to modify the A/C filter/dryer bracket". Where the hell can I move it!? What bracket!?!?!? It's 2 plastic ears molded to the sides of the housing! What's your take?:confused:

I wonder why you have to modify the truck for a banks intercooler but all the other brands are a drop in replacement? :dunno:

Because the boost tubes are have alledged "consistent bends", where the stockers are crush bent. I've been doing a lot of research on other intercoolers, & like you've said, they're just drop in. I'm thinking of going to ebay with the Banks piece.

Do the other brands include the larger charged air tubes in their kits?

They do, but from what I've been seeing, nothing under the hood needs to be modified.

On mine I had to bend the ac lines just a little bit. But I don't recall anything else I had to cut a piece on the battery tray and cut the fan shroud to make room for the high ram intake. Mine is an 04 maybe yours is a different year? dunno

Are you getting the cold side tube mixed up with the hot side tube?
No. I made a dry run before I made the actual attempt. In the instructions it's telling me I need to modify the bracket on the A/C filter & that's all it says.:dunno:
