The Cold-side Aluminum Intercooler Piping is designed to improve the performance of your EcoBoost F-150's turbos by improving the performance of your intercooler via an increase in airflow over the OEM alternative. This kit replaces the weak stock rubber hot-side and the restrictive cold-side piping with mandrel-bent aluminum tubing for smoother airflow.
The 3.5" to 3" cold-side pipe features mandrel bends to allow for smooth air flow and the ultra-resistance fibers on the silicone couplers offer enhanced tolerance against heat and pressure.
Designed to install easily with basic hand tools, the Cold-side Piping requires no extra modifications and should only take you about 90 minutes to swap out. Complete with all necessary t-bolt clamps and ultra-resistant couplers, this kit allows for a quick install.
This product is designed to fit 2011-2014 Ford F-150 3.5L EcoBoost models.
Note: This part is a direct-fit replacement to Ford OEM part no. BL3Z6F073A.

    Phenomenal product

    I bought this after my stock intercooler pipe blew up while under boost, leaving me running on all motor. Ford has a recall/stop sale and they won’t sell the stock they have. They claim to be redesigning Theo Joe but have no ETA. I found this product and am so happy I did! It came fast as heck, fit and finish is perfect and my truck runs amazing! Thank you guys for an awesome product!!!

    Quality product with fast shipping

    I was a little worried when I opened the box and the replacement did not look anything like the old intercooler pipe, everything fit back into place if a little snug. It was easy to install took about 45 minutes and used basic tools.

    Piping makes a difference?

    It was a little hard to fit into the truck I definitely only recommend loosening the intercooler bracket on the bottom so you can maneuver the pipe in but other than that got it in and the truck is driving fantastic hopefully next weekend I'll be able to put in the hot side piping

    Much more direct

    This pipe is good quality and has a good powder coat finish.

    It is much straighter than the stock pipe.

    The clamps and boots are high quality.

    Overall did exactly what I wanted at a great price

    Quality, build and attention to detail. Awesome pipe.

    I was very impressed right from the beginning of opening the box. The pipe is beautiful and is a quality piece. The fitment was right on and I really liked how the pipe had fewer bends and a more direct route from the intercooler to the throttle body. The couplers and clamps they send are very very good and make the install very easy. The sensor unbolts and bolts right up very easily with the replacement screws and a dab of loctite. Overall, the truck seems a bit more responsive when driving around on the butt dyno. After seeing the build quality of this pipe and how smooth everything installed, I plan on getting the hotside pipes and intercooler for my f150 to make the complete package. No more loss of power when towing! Thanks CVF!
