The H&S Motorsports 122009 Intercooler Pipe Upgrade replaces the failure-prone factory part in your 2017-2019 Ford 6.7L Powersroke. This kit allows you to replace the factory plastic/rubber intercooler hose assembly with upgraded components. The factory plastic hose adapter is replaced with a CNC-machined billet aluminum adapter (Patent Pending) that includes provisions for reinstalling the factory charge-air temperature sensor. The factory rubber intercooler hose is replaced with an upgraded 5-ply stainless reinforced silicone hose that is proven to withstand serious abuse. Why would you need to replace the factory intercooler hose assembly? Turbochargers not only produce pressure, but also generate heat in the process. Once the combination of heat and pressure exceeds what the factory intercooler hose assembly can handle, it will fail catastrophically, which could potentially leave you stranded on the side of the road. The factory intercooler hose assembly can fail on completely STOCK trucks. Don't get stranded, install the H&S Motorsports Intercooler Pipe Upgrade Kit. This Intercooler Pipe Upgrade removes the throttle body that was originally located in your OEM intake piping. Most aftermarket tuning will be capable of calibrating this valve out of the system. However, you must check with your tuning provider to confirm. Features: Increase Reliability Replaces OE Components Requires Aftermarket TuningÂ Note: Aftermarket tuning required. If you cannot confirm that your tuning provider is able to support removal of the factory throttle body, the OEM replacement version of this item is recommended.
