    My brother has pick-up and Suburban,both w/6.2,and I'm looking for K5 also w/6.2.We've been considering to get turbo for one of our rigs.Banks kit would be nice,but expensive,so we came to idea to get only the exhaust manifold from 6.5 and turbo custom made.All the other things,brackets,pipes etc.,we can make ourselves.How about intecooler?I read from the 4WOR that w/Banks kit the max. boost pressure is 10 psi,and exhaust gas temperature 1100F,if I remember correctly.So,if I add cooler,it will decrease air temperature in intake,therefore you can raise the amount of fuel to the cylinders.Can I crank up the injection more than 1/4 of a turn what Banks kit needs?Will the stock injectors be fine with this?And can the engine take the added power increase from the cooler?

    I'm too lazy to stick shift,that's why I prefer autotranny.

    Find a way to do a cooler for less then $500. and I will like to see it. The current cost is $1400. and thats bull crap for that price, Hell, it better be polished and installed for that price.

    $1400 for a cooler!That's a damn robbery!!I can get cooler for less than $300,custom made.Turbo goes something like $1100.Banks kit is,if I remeber correct,$2000.If I buy that,with s+h,customs,taxes,it's gonna cost over $3100.Building half the stuff by myself,total cost is about $1600-$1700.Oh yeah,and that turbo has wastegate,too

    Great, tell me where I can get the intercooler made for $300. If we could come up with a kit to sell I know that the price could come in for the at $650. and people would love to get them at that price. Some people just have to much money and need a place to spend it. Might as well help them.

    What ever turbo you put on it, if the Boost doesnt get above 10psi then the intercooler wont effect it much. The air doesnt get hot enough. Only when it gets above 10 is where it helps. Another thing you could do is go to a banks dealer and try and get a Used intercooler from a Ford Powerstroke. They Replace some with a Banks. Either way I think the Banks kit would be the best Route. Pay the 2000 and Get it.
