The price was around $1,250 on sale through Rigby diesel performance. The intercooler is a Banks intercooler for a 94-97 Ford F 250-350 7.3 powerstroke diesels. It helps keep my truck run lower EGTs under load, as well as unloaded climbing a pass. It comes with a bigger Y joint out of the intake, also comes with 3'' piping to the all aluminum intercooler.
Is this your first time buying from this brand? Did you consider other brands?
Yes, this is the first banks product I have bought, it has now been installed for 2 1/2 years now and I'm happy with the purchase and the considerable cooling it provides for my truck. I did consider other brands, even though I found less expensive options they did not compare in actual size of intercooler and didn't offer as much cooling.
Was it easy to install? Any installation tips that will help others?
Yes is was easy to install, just time consuming. I suggest you have a buddy there to help, the front bumper is hard to take off alone it is also close to 100lbs. Also I though I could get away with keeping the lights in the truck but they have to be removed along with the support that is behind it, the intercooler is to big to slide in between that support and the radiator. Other than that the only time consuming part is cutting out of the radiator support to fit the 3'' piping to the intercooler. the rest is just reassembly now of new parts and front end.
Once you've had a chance to use the product, did it meet your expectations?
I think its a great purchase, even though its prices well above its competitors. With that being said, if you plan on adding performance to your powerstroke then its a great foundation to build on.
Any additional comments?
clean your diesel truck before working on it and degrease the underside from road grime and potential past leaks.
