How to install turbo kit on Chevrolet Silverado 1500

When the engine is a mandatory part of a car you have given importance to its management. Intercooler pipe makes the engine cool and smooth to the car owner. Intercooler converts the compressed, super-heated, boosted intake air leaving the compressor outlet of the turbo into cooler, denser oxygen for the engine to ingest. Here are given some steps for installing the Intercooler pipe in your car.

Step 1: Remove the engine cover. Remove the “Y” section of the air intake by loosening the hose clamps from the rubber connections. Loosen the hose clamps and remove the hose couplers from both intercooler inlets. Remove the vacuum line from the passenger-side (RHS) stock intercooler pipe.

Step 2: From the passenger-side wheel well, loosen the hose clamp securing the passenger-side (RHS) intercooler pipe to the turbo. Remove the pipe from the vehicle.

Step 3: Now loosen the hose clamp securing the driver-side (LHS) intercooler pipe to the turbo. Remove the pipe from the vehicle.

Step 4: Then install a coupler onto the driver-side turbo outlet using a Hose clamp. Do not tighten the clamp yet. After then insert the LHS Upper Intercooler Pipe into the 1.875” X 2.5” X 45o Hose Coupler, securing it loosely using a 2.5” Hose Clamp.

Step 5: Now position the LHS upper intercooler pipe as necessary to insert the support post into the OEM rubber grommet. And install the 2.5” X 4” Hose Coupler onto the bottom end of the LHS Upper Intercooler Pipe, securing it using a 2.5” Hose Clamp.

Step 6: Now install one of the 2.5” Hump Hose Couplers onto the bottom inlet of the intercooler, securing it using a 2.5” Hose Clamp.

Step 7: Then install new intercooler kits. Do not tighten the clamp yet.

Step 8: Install it into the threaded bung on the RHS Intercooler Pipe. Position the RHS Intercooler Pipe as necessary to insert the support post into the OEM rubber grommet, then insert the bottom end.

Step 9: Install the previously removed vacuum line.

Step 10: Position the LHS and RHS Intercooler Pipes to obtain the best fit and maximize clearances, and then fully tighten all clamps. Replace the “Y” from the air intake and the engine cover. Trim the engine cover as needed to provide clearance to the LHS and RHS Intercooler. This is how you can install the intercooler pipe in your car.
