    My PDI intercooler arrived! But... it arrived with the box open.



    When I looked at the contents, it appears that, at a minimum, some couplings are missing. I emailed PDI to see what we should do about it.



    On a brighter note, the quality looks really good!



    Hopefully we get everything sorted out quickly. At least, I'm not planning on installing it until the snow melts anyway.

    The missing parts to my PDI intercooler kit are here! Now, I just need the weather to be warm enough to get the Evo out for the year. Also, because I read other people's discussion, I added fuel additive to my tank. I used Power Services Diesel Kleen. Wow, it actually made a really noticeable difference. The engine runs smoother. On my 0-60 measurement stretch, I gained about 3 mph. On flat ground, I run 1-2psi less boost to maintain speed. I used to to add lubrication to the fuel because, apparently, the new low sulfur fuels loose their lubricating properties. So, all of these other improvements are on top of that. Based on this experience, I'll probably add it to my fuel every few tanks. I'm going to try mineral 2-stroke oil as well.

    @RS1 is helping me get my intercooler installed because I'm on yet another business trip. Turns out my fancy bumper is in the way of the intercooler piping, so we had to make some room..He went ahead an made the cuts. We're hoping that everything cut remains behind the front valence, for cosmetic reasons. All the cut metal was coated in the silver POR-15.

    I did a run up into the southern portion of the White Mountains today. On the usual looong hills, my EGTs seem to be down 250 degrees or so. I could maintain 77mph all the way up without issue as well. When I installed the IC, I lost 1 lbs of boost. So, I tried to adjust back up... turns out I had over adjusted. I was pushing 24 or 25 psi. So I need to pull that back. Other than that, everything was perfect!

    Nice, well done!
    Side note, as a Jeep owner, what is it like doing 77? I hear a lot about it, but I really don't believe it's real, never seen it myself, likely just a made up number like 88 mph.

    Turned boost down and now max at 22-23 psi. Did my normal morning commute, so I could really compare EGTs. I am pretty impressed! Normally, I could reach 1200 degrees on the freeway onramp, and I would have to back off the throttle at around 70mpg indicated (77ish actual). Now, my EGTs seem to top out around 1050, no backing out from the throttle. Before, the EGTs would stay high and linger around the 1000-1100 degree range for roughly a mile. (I'm guessing due to ingesting all the hot air, heated by hot pipes) Now, EGTs drop down to 800 almost immediately. Before, my commute would see cruising EGTs around 1000 at 77mph (actual). Now, they sit around 700.

    I still have to grind the grill to get it to fit right. I also need to come up with a solution to get front turn signals back into my rig. But, given these numbers, I am a happy customer with this intercooler!


    Also, I wanted to share the cool horn setup that Rob came up with. The 45 degree angle made fitment pretty good:

    I went on my first hard shakedown run with the PDI intercooler on last weekend. I packed the rig full of gear and took the family up to Pittsburg. The Cruiser did great! EGTs were cool all the way through the mountains and I had plenty of power... never had to downshift at all!



    Also, I ended up getting 21.22 mpg!

    I went through my first full tank of gas since I swapped to the 37s. 9 mpg. Winning!

    LoL! There's the difference between a hardcore rock crawler and my daily driver. (I won't mention that my Wagoneer doesn't get much better mileage and it is rolling on 30s....)
