When we are asked what are the weaknesses that should be addressed on the 6.7L Powerstrokes, there aren't many, but one thing high on the list is the factory plastic intercooler pipe. And finally, someone has built a kit that addresses it, H&S Motorsports. This kit is a direct replacement of the factory plastic garbage that replaces it with a quality bead-rolled stainless steel pipe.
Besides a simple metal replacement pipe, there are other crucial components included in the kit to allow a quick, easy installation. Since the OEM pipe snaps onto the factory air intake valve, rather than using a traditional clamp, H&S Motorsports includes a beautiful CNC-machined aluminum piece that replaces the factory air intake valve to allow the use of a regular t-bolt clamp. Also included with the kit are all the brackets, clamps, and hardware required to complete the installation quickly and painlessly.
Why would you need to replace the factory plastic intercooler pipe?
- We have seen the factory intercooler pipes fail on BONE STOCK trucks.
Why does this happen?
- Turbochargers not only produce pressure, but also generate heat in the process. Once the combination of heat and pressure exceeds what the plastic intercooler pipe can handle, it will fail catastrophically, which could potentially leave you stranded on the side of the road.
Don't get stranded, install the H&S Motorsports Intercooler Pipe Upgrade Kit.
