This is designed for the 1994 – 2002 Dodge Ram Cummins turbo diesel trucks. From testing, the truck dropped intake air temps significantly during driving around the city. Also the truck comes into boost quicker and noticed also a small increase in fuel efficiency. A QUESTION ASKED FAR TOO MUCH, is this unit a factory replacement or more of a performance related product? This intercooler trumps the factory unit in all aspects, its not even close to a comparison. This is designed for performance although it can be used and often is used for factory replacement. Our intercooler upgrade is far superior to the factory unit and used by many people pulling, drag racing as well as typical street driving duties.
This core is 3″ thick with 3″ inlet and outlets on the intercooler. The actual core size is 17.75″ tall and its 36″ wide.
In order to make this intercooler fit such a wide range of trucks, it sometimes will take tweaks and bends slightly to make it bolt up correctly. Also on the truck we fit this in, we extended the intercooler pipe to the engine about 1.5″. Just using a longer silicone coupler would have worked just fine as well. We just want everything clear so you know what to expect for the install.
Don't forget to add the XL lower IC boots/clamps to make install easy.
NOTE: manufacturer is out of the boots - we can source at $130 a set for two 45 degree 3" to 3" ID boots, xtra long leg length, with clamps. Or you can source your own - need 5 inch or 6 inch leg length (from center of bend in middle to end of boot)
NOTE: Manufacturer will not ship/sell to California. Item cannot be shipped cost-effectively outside the continental U.S.
