intercooler for sts turbo kit

OK so I would like to know what kind of intercooler is everybody getting for the sts turbo kit. What size and what brand? Where and how are you mounting yours?
And what piping would I need and where to get it from.

Pictures would help to.
Thanks

I believe most everyone who has an intercooler is running their own custom setup, with piping they made themselves and sent away to get coated. The sts has an optional water-air intercooler setup, Kenihemi is the only guy I know running that one.

Be aware that an intercooler with the STS kit is not absolutely necessary, especially with the limited transmission and tuning solutions available.

ie. nobody is going to run 15+ psi and still have some Dodge left in the truck.

I have the STS water/air i/c also but I would not recommend it because it is like $1500. It would be more cost effective to make yourself an air/air fmic.

I agree. Its big money and has design flaws in my opinion.

It is a closed system and you never really know if the pump loses prime and the coolant is not actually circulating. I added a 3gal reservoir to mine and set it up so that the pump cannot lose prime.

Yah..the air/water setup is too expensive for what it is.....

I swapped out the shitty little pump from the original kit to a 3gpm diaphragm pump to increase flow. Then I made a cooling reservoir with 25 feet of copper tubing inside and some ice to further cool the water.

The air/water intercooler provided in the kit is too short and loses its efficiency beyond 8psi....so I added a snow performance meth injection kit as well

OK..I ordered an sts turbo kit, so..here comes a lot of questions..... Please help on what you know. Thanks in advance!

For the intercooler:
-What pipe size?
-What length of the pipe size?
-What and how many couplers?
-What intercooler? What dimensions? (I already got 24x12x3 dimension...any others?)
-What type of coating on the piping? Where do I get it done?

I need to know as I already ordered the turbo kit. And I do want an intercooler.

Now for 4 more questions....

1)-Who can supply me with a tune?
I got the kit with a SMT-6 programmer, 2 bar map sensor, 48# injectors, electronic boost controller. Any instructions on where all this goes connected to?

2)-Does anybody have the instructions on how to install the sts turbo kit?...I want to start reading them.

3)-And what gauges do I need? I already got boost and pyrometer gauges.

4-Is in front of the radiator the only place I can mount an intercooler? Is it possible to mount it behind the bumper... i have an srt-10 bumper.

Thanks Again.
