LMAO i can image the dropped pressure with the added length of the piping...
Could just use liquid/air. Run 3/4” lines to it, pretty easy and would work. I saw one off a turbo’d sand rail. 42”x4x4”. Coulda been used for oil cooling too, which is what i thought it originally was, until corrected.

Sweet project, looks good!

Good job replacing the paperweight (err... turbo). Never liked the CX intercooler position, but if you're not poking any holes in your truck, it's about the best you can do I guess. I'd think about louvers and a fan to direct more air through it. @Cruzilla just did something like this with his A/W intercooler (puller fan on top):



Not sure 10psi with the stock computer/fuel setup will yield safe afr's (mine was spot on at 6psi), but only one way to find out I guess!
I had a Syclone and the mod back then was to put a 6-8" puller fan on the lower heat exchanger. Of course it needed al the help it could get. This setup is more than enough cooling as is I believe

So the heat exchanger Im using is a dural 11x12 40 row fluid cooler with a Spal 11 inch puller fan on top with 844 CFM.
I have found the WAIC to be cold to the touch when you pop the hood after sustained boost.

if you have the room I would mount it behind the grill in front of your AC condenser, I happen to have a AC fan there that I like so it went down below the winch...

AI/Water injection is an option for cooler intake temp. if demand more boost and IC is functioning less than ideal.

Yes it’s 10 psi through a 5858. It probably doesn’t even need an intercooler.
I meant there will be little to no outdoor air moving across the outside of the cooling elements. You need some kind of scoop underneath the to force any air thru.

There are several. The 2 most popular are more than most want to pay though. There is one very cheap alternative but it is no good in my opinion and the one mid-level option looks pretty good but I haven't seen it in person.

Nice setup.

These trucks need a forward facing intake manifold
