Freak-O-Boost Front Mount Intercooler Kit
FITMENT: 2017-2020 Raptor EcoBoost w/ eBOV, 2017-2020 Raptor EcoBoost w/ aftermarket BOV
The addition of a high performance air-to-air intercooler is an easy bolt-on installation for any turbocharged vehicle. Also known as the CAC (charge air cooler), the stock F150 cooler is located below the radiator in the lower front grille area. This stock EcoBoost intercooler uses a thin aluminum intercooler core crimped to plastic endtanks. The design is low cost, easy to manufacture, and offers adequate cooling for the stock turbos. However high performance and larger turbos can over-work the stock core, causing heatsoak (intake air temperatures rise uncontrollably) and a corresponding reduction in power.
The F150 is a tough truck that will be subjected to work site and off-road abuse, so high strength and durability are mandatory. Our gussetted thickwall aluminum upper-bracket and hand made endtanks are expertly TIG welded in precise fixtures and relocate the core out of harms way. We pressure test every intercooler to 50 psi on our test stand to ensure our customers never receive a leaking core (even small pinhole leaks can lose power). The lower support beam is hand-fabricated from high strength steel and powder coated black. This intercooler has 3" inlet / 3" outlet and is available with AEM water/meth bungs on the coldside charge pipe.

In high humidity or rainy environments, the stock intercooler position can lead to condensation water building-up inside the stock cooler. Upon sudden acceleration and boost, this water can be introduced into the engine, causing a misfire event. We recommend using a mechanical vent-to-atmosphere BOV (blow-off valve) on the lower charge pipe, after the intercooler. These can help evacuate moisture from the charge air stream before it enters the engine's throttle body. The 2017+ eBOV may leak boost above 22psi, so we strongly recommend using a mechanical BOV for any high boost setups.
