cp-e Delta Core Front Mount Intercooler Kit for all 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014 3.5L EcoBoost F-150s.
For the everyday driver, the stock intercooler on the 2011-2014 3.5L EcoBoost F-150 does a great job. But, when you’re looking to push your trucks power beyond factory limits, you will need an upgrade like this cp-e Delta Core Front Mount Intercooler Kit from CJ Pony Parts! This intercooler from cp-e is larger than the stock intercooler, providing a higher level of efficiency.

The main goal of cp-e for the Delta Core front mount intercooler was to achieve a maximum core size to fit the F-150 without the need of any additional modifications. And cp-e scored! Next was the task of creating end-tanks that would fit the intercooler while also not requiring any cutting, drilling or other permanent modifications. Mission accomplished! The Delta Core intercooler uses laser cut brackets that allow it to install in the factory location and match up with stock intercooler piping.
The end-tanks that cp-e has created for the Delta Core intercooler have been engineered from hours of design and computer flow diagrams. With smaller sized end-tanks that are fully cast and feature a unique internal design involving turbulence reduction fins engineered by cp-e, the end result are end-tanks that have virtually no turbulence! Typically when upgrading to a larger intercooler, there is an increase in turbo lag and pressure drops that are a result of turbulence within the end-tanks. The end-tanks internal design also directs airflow to distribute evenly throughout the core. This provides significantly lower and more consistent charge temps as they reach the engine.
Please Note: The cp-e designed universal flange (P/N: UMFG00003M) must be used to add a Turbosmart Supersonic Smart Port Blow Off Valve (P/N: TS02151367 or TS02151371) to any 2013-2014 3.5L EcoBoost F-150 equipped with the cp-e Delta Core Front Mount Intercooler Kit (P/N: FDCK00003T).

The core of this monster cp-e Delta Core Front Mount Intercooler measures 21 inches tall, 17 inches wide and four inches thick with fully cast end tanks to maintain proper air flow and pressure. It comes with everything you need for installation, and with significantly lower intake temperatures, giving you more power and safer power. Today we're going to be installing it on the 2013 EcoBoost F-150.
Tools you'll need for this installation: quarter inch ratchet, 8 millimeter socket, a short extension, three inch ratchet, ten millimeter socket, 11 millimeter socket, 13 millimeter socket, 14 millimeter socket, 15 millimeter socket, 3/16 hex key or Allen key, an extension, 19 millimeter wrench, and a panel removal tool or a flat head screw driver.
One of the great things about working on a truck like this is you actually don't need to put it up in the air to do a lot of the work. Just like this intercooler, we didn't need to put it on the lift, we just have it up for filming purposes. First thing we're going to do is remove all the clips securing in this splash panel. You can either use a flat head screwdriver, or a trim removal tool to remove these. Then the ones back here just simply twist out.
With the splash guard out, we're going to remove the front air dam, but removing the two 15 millimeter nuts that secure it in place. You can now remove the bypass hose by twisting the gray clip, and pulling it off. Also, disconnect the connector going to it.
Remove all four hose clamps from the hot side intercooler plates.
Now the other coupler.
With a flat head screwdriver, remove the retainer ring that holds on the cold side intercooler pipe, and remove the pipe. Now up on top of the truck, we can remove the bracket securing the top of the intercooler by removing the two 10 millimeter bolts. You can now remove the top plate of the intercooler. Remove the blow off valve connector from the intercooler. We're at the point now where we can drop the inter-cooler. We just need to remove two bolts. Now I'm going to secure it with this pull jack because I don't have any friends to help me right now and it's kind of heavy, so I'm gonna support it just so it doesn't fall down while I remove the two bolts.
There's one 13 millimeter bolt on each side of the inter- cooler bracket. With both bolts removed, we can lower the intercooler. Here you can see a side by side comparison of the factor inter-cooler and the cp-e Delta Core intercooler. The cp-e Delta Core intercooler is significant taller and thicker. It's definitely gonna do a much better job of cooling the air than the factor intercooler.
We're begin assembling the cp-e Delta Core intercooler. The first thing we're gonna do is install the brackets. You're gonna install these brackets to where they're arching towards the middle and the nut is on the bottom just like this and use the provided hardware to secure them. Then tighten the bolts with a 14 millimeter socket. Then thread on one stud to each bracket. We're gonna transfer over the rubber grommets from the factory mounts to the cp-e intercooler.
We're gonna do the same thing on the bottle. Install the studs, one on each side and transfer over the bottom grommet from the factor intercooler to the cp-e intercooler, tying it with a 19 millimeter wrench then put on the grommet. Same thing on the other side. With an 8 millimeter socket we're gonna remove the factory blow off valve from the factor intercooler. Then twist it counter clockwise and pull it out. cp-e includes 2 blow off valve plates. One is to mount on the intercooler so you can mount the factory blow off valve to it. The other is a block off plate if you want to run an aftermarket blow off valve.
We're obviously going to be using this plate because we're gonna be using the factory blow off valve. Install it using the provided hardware. Now tighten on the bolts with a 3/16 ratchet. We're actually not going to be reusing this factory blow off valve entirely. We're only going to be reusing this part so we're gonna remove it by taking the two 8 millimeter screws off. Then install the blow off valve onto the adapter with the provided hardware. Then tighten the bolts with a 3/16 ratchet.
Finally, install the drain plugs into the bottom of the intercooler with a 3/16 ratchet. Put the lower bracket on the bottom of the intercooler. Make the grommets pop through and she's ready to go in the truck.
All right. You will probably need some help with this. Now lift the intercooler into place. Tighten up the bolts. Push back on the intercooler and then slide the upper mount down into place and push it onto the grommets. Secure the mount with the factory hardware. We connect the blow off valve. Since we're no longer using the factory blow off valve assembly, you can actually remove the hose in it from the blow off valve to the intake tube. Just twist on the gray clip counter clockwise and push off. Cp-e provides a cover and a hose clamp to go over the bar that came off the factory hose so there's no leak. Tighten up the hose clamp.
Reconnect the intercooler pipes starting with the cold side pipe. Push it onto the intercooler. Then install the factory retaining ring. Push it down to where it clips in and it's nice and secure. We can now install the couplets for the hot side pipes. Take the provided hose clamps and install the larger one and smaller one on the coupler and install the smaller side on the pipe and the larger side on the intercooler. Tighten up the hose clamps with an 11 millimeter socket. With the intercooler fully installed, we can now re-install the air dam.
The last step is to reinstall the splash guard. You're installation is finished.
Now we'll demonstrate the blow off valve.
The cp-e Delta Core Front Mount Intercooler is installed as expected. Fitting it was really good. It mounted up super easy. It looks great but is important to note that you do remove the stock blow off valve muffler and re-circulation assembly and it does vent to atmosphere so it is significant louder than the factory blow off valve. Installation should take about 2 to 3 hours and before you know it, you'll be heading down the road.
