    Looking at getting an Intercooler for the 2018 Raptor but which one?
    Add Offroad
    Full Race
    SVT

    Are they all basically the same? Which one is better?

    Thanks for the Help in advance!

    I have the full race. Straight forward install and you can get it in black for a stealthy look. Dont think you would go wrong either way

    I'd say SVC or wait and see what @COBB Tuning brings to the table. They have one in the works

    This isn't too far out.

    It will be compatible with COBB Off The Shelf maps, is a direct bolt-on that requires no cutting, and works with stock or aftermarket bumpers. You'll also have a choice between black or silver finishes!

    EDIT: The back side of the grill section does indeed require some trimming. Sorry for the confusion! The grille shutters will also need to be removed.

    This seems to be the one....would love to know if "not too far out" means a 2 months or 8 months. I'll probably wait either way though...i like the "No cutting" aspect.

    This may be a dumb question, but is there more of a "heatsoak" issue using a black intercooler vs silver? I like the idea of a stealthy black IC, but not if it means sacrificing performance due to higher temps.

    The first batch is already out for coating and we're cueing up another batch as I type this. We are aiming to have intercoolers and supporting Stage 2 maps available in February.

    wow....great news. Preorders? or straight "hey there are here, order now". Do you plan on doing any type of install video....i'm sure alot of us "not so mechanics" would appreciate a video(always helps in assuring folks like me that i could possible handle an install or decide that "taking to a shop")

    I talked to Sylvestor yesterday at your shop about the tune and intercooler. Super nice guy and very informative. I love the fact that your just a few hours away from me in the great State of Texas. I will be on the look out for your intercooler may even drive down to pick it up.

    The black may get a little hotter with the bumper off in direct sunlight but I don't think you'll have a noticeable difference in power (or probably not even a measurable one) between the colors.

    There will be an install guide with step by step instructions. We don't currently have any plans for a video. Once available, you'll be able to order it directly off the website. We don't typically take pre-orders. Stay tuned here for all the details to make sure you're among the first!
