My question is, if you are running twin turbos why not run twin intercoolers, placing one between the primary and secondary. The extra intercooler could be mounted in the truck bed.

Would it help or just be a waste?

you are going to run piping all the way back to the bed then back up to the secondary? i dont think the benefits would be too much. plus, where are you going to run the piping? both the exhaust and the turbos are on the passenger side. would you try to pipe it over to the passenger side then back? water meth would be much better. heck, an aftermarket intercooler would probably be better.


oh well, i have a map to the darkside

just get a bigger aftermarket intercooler that can handle it like a spearaco or somthing.

and with a twin turbo setup a straight water, or water\meth injection would be a good choice if you the extra $$.

It was just a thought, I saw a ford with a cummins in it that was done that way, the driver felt the intercooler work better in the bed but took up to much space.
