So, have around 250 miles on the engine. Did kinda of a short rolling test hit after going over a speed bump. Didn't even get into boost. She's running surprisingly stronger at the lower to mid rpm range. That's where I wanted it to run better. Normally, it doesn't pull that strong until it gets into boost. Starting to let it get into a few psi of boost for a short time as part of the engine break-in. Happy with the results so far. (y)

Also happy with no oil leaks. The OCP intake manifold had a casting flaw that caused it to leak oil. OCP would not replace the intake manifold... That's the other reason why I swapped over to a Holley Hi-Ram. So far, it hasn't been acting funny. And that's with the 80lb (straight solid stream spray pattern) injectors.

Wanted to see if there was room to mod the cowl. The glass laying inside the cowl reminded me that this truck has been wrecked before. It won't hold any value to speak of. The cowl can be modified to make room for the Hi-Ram intercooler. And it will fit under the hood. (y)

That can't be mounted out in front behind the bumper?

It goes directly in the intake manifold itself air blows right thru it. Mine will be something like 6” thick lol. Hood will be cut up most likely with it sticking up thru. Stu will be nice and hidden.

stu look into the “killer chiller” you will like that

Well, the intercooler is in there. But, the firewall will have to be modified to make room to be able to install and tighten down the allen bolts. There is no room to install the allen bolts on the lower intercooler mounting flange at the firewall side.
