Have any of you guys had problems getting the hoses to fit on the intercooler? The intercooler inlets are easily a 1/4 inch larger than the pipes that came with my kit.
use factory boots from a 7.3 but make sure you get the style with only two rings on them the other ones with three will not work cause they are to long and dont flex enough. This is how i have done both of mine. Good luck:ford:What kind of boots are the proper ones? Yeah you are right its the ebpv. I made that sig my first day of ownership... I have learned quite a bit about my 7.3l since.
No, my banks intercooler pipes lined up perfect with the intercooler. I have the one with metal endtanks also. I have better boots now, but at first i had factory boots and they worked fine, just wanted some thicker, more reliable ones.Crap, I have an aluminum tank intercooler and the Banks piping kit too. Am I going to have to do some cutting and welding on the pipes? I've had the kit sitting here for weeks but have been too busy lately to touch it.
Probably just depends on how you mount it. I knew I was going to have to do that ahead of time. I mounted the intercooler as high as possible so I will have the room to do a RSK kit someday. I had to cut 5 1/2 to 6" off each side. I have a 6.0 cooler though there might be some height differences, but I don't think so.Crap, I have an aluminum tank intercooler and the Banks piping kit too.
