So, "Hey, where did you get that intercooler, and what size is it???""

Really though I would like to know.

The core is 24x12x3. I got set up as a dealer with the the company so I could get more engineering data on the intercoolers than Joe public. So you could get one from me, or find one on the internet/Ebay...

Update 9/8/9

Finally got to the point where it was together enough to tear it all apart and get it ready to paint. Got the inner fenders, rad support and valance and firewall all done in black. Jams and edges are going to be done in body color this weekend and then off to the paint shop!!! Also got paint on the engine. Cummins Beige...
Couple of pics attached, more here: www.photobucket.com/zmjeeps/Humpty

Zack, did you already eliminate the KDP? If not, give a shout to Scott at www.tndiesel.com. Also, he can talk to you more about the mounts you used and potential issues / or at least confirm they'll work well. He's a good guy and knows his 4bt stuff (he specializes in swaps). The KDP usually shows up in the 6bt, but even though the 4bt has a slightly different style of mount, they can fail too.

Hey Zach. Could you do up a Small expenses list of what you have spent. I plan on a 4bt soon as well but unsure of the cost. I keep hearing 10 grand or so thrown around. Thanks
