Neat. These are some nice intercooler installs. This is turning into a very informative and worthwhile thread.

Is there such thing as an intercooler/radiator combo unit? That'd be a nice space saver

The term "intercooler" is quite often interchanged between an air to air and air to water system.

I myself am not sure if you could, but anything is possible.

I probably should not admit this on here, but in a former life I had a Merkur XR4ti. Actually no, I am proud of that wicked little car. It had the 2.3 Ford Turbo Motor in it, same as the old Fox Body Mustang SVO's. Anyway, one of the upgrades for those cars was to add an intercooler. There was a company that sold a radiator/IC combo. They were one piece with the intercooler on top and the radiator on bottom. Below is the link. Obviously this is way to small for a diesel of any size. But it does work on a smaller displacement gasoline engine.

Couple questions...

What is the part number, truck that the Mishimoto intercooler came out of? I like the clean install of that one.

Also, the guys who are running intercoolers, where it appears the front valance has not been trimmed much at all, are you running the radiator in the stock location also?

As for a split Intercooler/Radiator set up I have seriously contemplated this route. Doesn't seem so bad. I crunched some numbers and to have a intercooler and radiator share the same width hole as a stock V8 radiator, but extend down a few more inches, you actually could have a greater surface area to the radiator than stock with about a 9 in wide intercooler.

Kinda set up like this, from an international truck, not the greatest picture, but you get the idea.

Many Cummins came with an aftercooler. It was an intercooler with coolant lines plumbed into it. They are great for stationary applications or where you done get much airflow. Same principle as mentioned in this thread.

They will never cool as much as a straight intercooler as the coolant (160-180 degrees) will be the lowest point of cooling. Some of the high horsepower guys use this thype of setup but use ice water, a circ pump, but that is only good for 1/4 mile at a time.

Unless the airflow is SEVERLY restricted or the motor will be stationary, your best cooling and horsepower gains are from a straight intercooler.

My radiator is mounted in the original front/back location on the frame.

Although I had to trim my valence that was because I wanted the IC as far forward as I could get it to mount some other coolers between the IC and radiator.

If you get the two as close together as possible you can get an IC in with little or no trimming

That's not necessarily accurate. Depending on the size of your radiator, coolant flowing out can be much colder than that. Coolant that enters an engine at 180 degrees is going to do a very poor job at removing heat.

Also, keep in mind that water is much more thermally conductive than air.
