In the last update (which, I know was a while ago), we left you with what the final design of the core looked like, complete with renders and studio shots of the physical production sample. The project’s lead engineer knows that any intercooler design should be able to live up to the demanding performance these trucks require during, off-road or work use, daily driving, and even … Continue Reading ››

When we first began on this project, we were choosing between a couple of possible design philosophies that Jason, the … Continue Reading ››

Pretty F-150’n Cool – Intercooler R&D, Part 1: Factory Review
