Sure, here ya go....

Intercooler - cxracing - ebay - http://www.ebay.com/itm/350225622115...84.m1423.l2649

3" alum tubing in the kit ----
pipe kit - cxracing - (2) 90* 3"
(2) straight
(2) 70* bend
(2) 45* bend
(14) T-bolts
(7) silicone couplers
Some miscellaneous things found in my shop to mount cooler. NO cutting of the truck at all, only a little pring of the inter fender well for pipe clearance was needed.

I called cxracing ( phone the tech dept) told them what I needed and they built a kit for me instead of each piece separate. I used the 3" stuff as everything is 3" in my setup. You will have just under 400$ in it and the cooler will flow about twice the CFM our motor needs with little pressure loss.

I am in the install stage now, front mount where the skid plate is. It will work good at helping keep IAT down, other members on other sites have used this very kit, in fact that is where I got the info and parts list from, I didn't figure this out myself, I copied it.

Water injection will also help if you can carry enough water to last ya till next fill up, I built a 60gallon tank that looks like a in bed tool box for my truck. Again, I used a Devils Own # DCV-30 kit, I am installing this now also.

The build I copied is on another site, it is in the pay for membership section and I won't copy & past it here, it has pics and a detailed install for this kit.

PM me if you need more info. and I don't have pics yet, will post a thread when done with some pics.

If you just take a look in the sticky threads on the 6.5 forum, you will find that a few members have done there on kits and show pics of it. It would be a whole lot cheaper to make your own kit.

Be sure to start with at least a 500cfm intercooler. Siliconeintakes.com sells intercooler plumbing kits as well as intercoolers and all the couplers and clamps you could need. *****ular diesel sells a nice 3in upper plenum that helps plump into the pipe from intercooler. the stock upper plenum can be mounted in reveres and used that way.

Just wondering if on a long hill climb this is not going to effect the radiator with the amount of heat you will dump out of the turbo right into the radiator ? How do you find your general water temps etc ?

its not an issue, the oil cooler, tranny cooler, power steering coolers are all relocated... oil cooler is lower now, with a mouth cut in the bumper with a thermostatically controlled puller fan, the tranny cooler is under the bed with a thermostatically controlled puller fan, and the power steering cooler is deleted.... these are the major heat makers in the front stack, add to that the blockage of the A/C cooler and that makes the heat.... on a hot summer day after a long pull it is fairly warm, but not even half the heat of the engine oil cooler.... dont see any reflection on the temp gauge, and the piece of mind that we wont scrap it if we hit a curb is bonus...

edit: after reading SC's CXracing ad, our intercooler is actually bigger, we run a 27''x 16"....

Haha, I didn't notice till now.

My understanding is an intercooler is not needed when running the stock turbo since it's only meant to run 10psi max before they are out of their efficiency range.

If your running a freer flowing turbo at higher sustained boost, that would permit the use of an intercooler.
