Provides Room for Winches and Light Bars while Improving Power Output and Performance
The stock intercooler on your 2017 F150 or 2017-2018 Raptor does just enough to keep your aggressive 3.5L EcoBoost V6 churning stock levels of horsepower and torque, but its position in the lower grille opening makes mounting winches or light bars a pain and it's not exactly the most efficient thing in the world when it comes to airflow and performance. The Full-Race Freak-o-Boost Intercooler Kit aims to fix both problems by relocating the entire intercooler higher in the grille and by replacing it with a highly efficient bar-plate aluminum intercooler that outflows and out-cools the factory intercooler by a wide margin. The higher mounting of the Full-Race Freak-o-Boost intercooler allows you to use winches or LED light bars in your 2017 F150's lower bumper without impeding airflow to the intercooler, allowing you to put together a capable off-road rig. The intercoolers bar-plate aluminum design coupled with its much more efficient core greatly improves airflow and cooling ability over stock, reducing the temperatures of inbound charge air while increasing volume which can get your truck noticeable gains in performance, especially when custom tuned.
High-Mount Design with Greatly Improved Airflow and Cooling
The stock intercooler is your pretty run-of-the-mill factory intercooler system with a tube-fin core with plastic endtanks that definitely isn't the most efficient design in the world. Full-Race's Intercooler features a highly-efficient bar-plate design that's combined with cast aluminum end tanks which greatly improves the cooling ability of their intercooler over stock. The endtanks are expertly TIG-welded to the core and pressure tested up to 50 psi for leaks to ensure flawless operation. The end tanks have built-in 3" diameter flanges for the inlet and outlet tubes, which are also included in the package. The core of each intercooler kit features a large, single-pass design that allows for much more efficient airflow over stock and can handle aggressive tuning, bolt-ons, and/or turbocharger upgrades so that you can turn your F150 into a brutal performance machine in practically no time. The intercooler has built-in mounts that combine with Full-Race's other included mounting hardware to move the intercooler up high into your truck's upper grille.
Options for Stock eBOV and Aftermarket BOV Systems
The Full-Race Freak-o-Boost Intercooler Kit comes with a bunch of options that allow you to build the kit to perfectly match your F150's application or other modifications. The intercooler can come in either a natural aluminum finish or a black anodized finish at additional cost (anodizing adds roughly a full week onto the build time). The intercooler's charge tubing comes with several flange options to accept both the stock and popular aftermarket blow-off valve options for the 2017 F150s. The cold side flange can be optioned to accept the factory eBOV system or a Turbosmart Supersonic BOV Kit. The actual Turbosmart BOV Kit is available right here
. The intercooler's cold side tubing can also be fitted with water-methanol injection bungs that makes setting up a water-methanol that much easier. Whatever your options, each Full-Race Intercooler kit will come with a full set of installation hardware.
Grille Shutter removal required: this intercooler kit requires the removal of your truck's factory grille shutters for proper installation onto your truck.
