Constructed of 60-61 aluminum, these hot side intercooler pipes go from each turbo to the intercooler, and increase airflow up to 200%, and will help the intercooler work more efficiently, lowering intake temperatures. This MBRP hot side intercooler pipe kit works with a factory and an aftermarket intercooler, and includes all clamps, couplers, and hardware, and today we're going to be installing it on this 2014 F-150.
For this installation, you'll need a lift, or jack and jack stands, a quarter inch ratchet, a five and a half millimeter socket, eight millimeter socket, ten millimeter socket, a universal socket, various extensions, eleven millimeter wrench, flathead screwdriver, trim removal tool, needle-nose pliers, and Teflon tape.
To begin installing the hot pipes on this F-150, we're going to give ourselves a little bit more room to work with by removing the stop intake. Loosen up the hose clamps. With all three clamps loosened, you can remove the Y-pipe. We're also going to remove the engine cover; we need to remove the oil filler cap first, then lift up.
We're underneath the truck now, so we can get to the pipes that connect to the intercooler. To get to them, we need remove the splash guard. Now we can loosen the clamps on the pipes that go to the intercooler. There are two pipes, and the upper one is way up there; you're definitely going to need some extensions. Now we're going to remove the vacuum line going to the passenger side intercooler pipe.
This step isn't entirely necessary; however, it will make things a little bit easier, but we're doing it for filling purposes. We're going to be removing the wheel well so we can get better access to the turbo. These are a five and a half millimeter bolt. With all the clips removed, you can remove the wheel well. To completely remove the wheel well, you have to disconnect these electrical connectors; they're secured in with clips, just pull them out.
There are two pipes going to the turbo. One is the inlet, the other is the outlet; the outlet is the hot pipe, which is the one on top, and that's the one we're going to be removing. You're probably going to need a universal socket to get on here, it's pretty tricky. There's a vacuum line going to the turbo inlet pipe that you're going to have to remove in order to remove the hot pipe.
Now we can remove the driver side pipe. Although it's not necessary, we're going to remove the wheel well. You might be able to do this without doing it, but we're just doing it for filling purposes, so we're going to remove the wheel well on the driver side as well. Once again, just like the other side, the hot side pipe on this side is the pipe that's on top. This is the outlet of the turbo; the one on the bottom is the inlet, which is not the hot pipe. With the clamp all the way loosened, you can remove the hot pipe from the turbo outlet.
To remove the driver side hot pipe, you have to undo this clamp right here. Just spread it apart. With the pipe up and out of its mount. To make it a little easier to remove this pipe, we're going to disconnect these hoses. May also have to remove the cold pipe from the throttle body to give you a little bit more room as well. With the pipe out, you can remove the intercooler pipe clamp.
We can now begin the installation of the MBRP hot side intercooler Pipe Kit. We're going to start off the installation by installing this forty five degree on the driver side turbo. We're going to be installing this coupler with the clamps on it, and we also sprayed some lubricant on the coupler; it's going to make it a lot easier to adjust once it's installed, and we're not going to tighten it just yet. We're just going to loosely tighten this, we're not going to make it super tight. We want to be able to adjust it.
This is a ninety degree pipe that we're going to be putting on the intercooler. It's going to mount on the upper intercooler port, and this is not a symmetrical pipe, this section is longer than this section; the longer section connects to the intercooler so it can clear everything else, and the shorter section goes up. You're going to want these hose clamps facing down so you're going to be able to access them, and we lubricated the ports here as well. We put lubrication on all the couplers, it's going to make it a lot easier to go together, and to adjust.
Make sure you leave all the clamps a little bit loose so you can adjust it, and then once everything's together, then you can tighten it. We're now going to install the pipe that connects the turbo to the intercooler. With the driver side pipe in place, we can tighten up the clamps. Tightening this clamp is going to be tricky, you're probably going to need some extensions and a universal socket. Now we'll tighten up the lower clamp. Now we're going to secure the coupler to the intercooler. Now the final clamp for the driver side intercooler pipe. Now we can go to the passenger side pipe. Now we can install the forty five degree coupler on the passenger side turbo.
Now we can work on the intercooler pipe. Here you can see a comparison of the old hot pipe versus the new one; as you can see, the new one is much larger in diameter, and it flows a lot more. The old one has a vacuum fitting on it, which we'll need to install a brass bar on the new one to replace it. When you install this fitting, you want to install it with Teflon tape or thread sealant. Now it can go in the truck. Now install the coupler on the lower intercooler inlet.
You can tighten up the clamp that's on the intercooler, but leave this one loose so you can easily install the pipe. With both couplers in place, we can install the passenger side intercooler pipe. Get the pipe seated in the mount, and then you can go down bottom to the intercooler and secure it there. As you can see, the angle from the pipe to the coupler is pretty far off. The intercooler we have is a Vortech intercooler, and it actually came with its own couplers, so we're going to switch out the MBRP for the Vortech coupler, and it should line up much better.
Now we can tighten the coupler on the turbo. Now reinstall your vacuum line. Now you can move on to re-installing the fender liners and the factory intake. Reinstall the fender liner. Now reinstall the lower splash guard. Finally, reinstall the factory intake. In order for the engine cover to fit back on the vehicle, you will have to trim it. With it trimmed, you can reinstall it. Your installation's finished.
Our MBRP hot side intercooler Piping is installed. It looks great, it's going to make this truck perform a lot better, and it complements everything else we did to the intercooler system really well. Installation should take you about four hours, and before you know it, you'll be heading down the road.
