VMS Custom Hotside Intercooler Pipe PICS !!

To start off we decided to completely change the the way the pipe matted to the intercooler. We choose to shorten the overall length of the pipe which reduced the bends and eliminated the hot spots in the pipe. We choose to mount it higher because there was a larger natural opening in the core support which we could trim eliminating the need to crimp the pipe in any location to avoid touching. The only pieces that are from the factory pipe are the 2 ends because they are ribbed to fit the boots and there is no way we can duplicated it. the rest of the pipe is 3" aluminized steel that we painted silver for the time being to resist rust. The plan is to send this pipe to the mandrel bender for duplication to produce a uniform unwelded pipe in either aluminized or stainless steel. Depending if the price is resonable we will offer these pipes in either the mandrel bent form or we will custom fab every pipe whatever price is more reasonable in the end.

The results are an there has been no scientific testing done just @ss dyno and egt gauge readings. From the initial drive out of the driveway I noticed that the power came on way smoother no more touchy pedal that I associated with the sct tune. As I eased down on the throttle to 3/4 throttle I certainly feels like the truck pulls way harder then before and that any little air turbulence is gone. The overall driving experience is better than before its a definitely noticeable difference. The EGT drop is about 30-35 degrees when loaded. I tested the egts by going up a long high gradual incline @ 65mph with the converter looked in fifth. The outside temp was 45degrees with stock pipe and 60degrees with modded pipe and we saw a 30-35degree drop on a warmer day. I will post up an mpg that I might have picked up as I drive it more.

So here are the pics tell me whatcha think

no much less than 1/4" of an inch off the upper part of the core support and the core cuts really easy with a little grinder. the reason we chose to raise where the pipe comes through the core is because there alot of available room up there that's going to waste.
