Guys,
I did a search for alternatives to front mount intercoolers and found some good information on a 1999 Ford Power Stroke Diesel engine with a HUGE IC for a great price. Part number F81Z-6 K775-BA, list $295, paid $235. This cooler has 23 tubes, 1/2 inch by 2 inch. Here are the specs of the IC: 39" wide, 18" tall, 2.5" thick overall (plus inlet & outlet). The actual core measures 18" tall, 30" wide, 2" thick.
It has 3 inch inlet and outlet connections, on about 35 inch centers.

Has anyone tried this setup? Seems like a good deal for such a big IC, but probably a big job to route the pipes. I have access to a welder and a pipe bending machine, so I might give it a try. Just looking for opinions and unforeseen problems I might encounter.

Chuck M.
