If only you had cool rims like me. I do love the valence though, nicest ones for our trucks.

Ah man, the vast emptiness in there is killing me lol. It's going to waste untill you get your forced induction setup done. That would be perfect for stuffing a heat exchanger inside, and still keeping everything else cool.

Yeap, would be perfect for an air to air. What exchanger are you using dave?

Just a stock a/w lightning one. It's still too big for a regular f150 valence lol

I'm a bit concerned with how close together all the radiators, coolers, heat exchangers are, but not much i can do unless ibd wants to sell his piaa front valance haha. Lightning valance would have plenty of airflow but would look aweful.

Today it hit 93 and the truck felt it. After 2 summers with the s/c im going to say that extra cooling capacity is a must. Our trucks stock cooling system sucks when you throw boost at it.
You running those off a thermostat, switch, or both?

I'll just rig it up to a switch for now, ill probably put the switch in that useless cubby untill i think of something more clever. I drive with my x4 plugged in often so i can see all the temps and adjust as needed.

Thermostat would be cool, but not sure that im electrically inclined enough to do that lol, and i wouldn't trust it. Ideally id want it to turn on if IAT2 temps hit above 120 and speeds are below 45. Maybe ibd can help lol

It's going to be tough to explain in words, there are alot of weird size hoses for the I/C system. I'll see if i can dig up some pics of the plumbing. If you want i can just send over a quick video if your curious for your build.

@2000MTZ did them off a thermostat and burned through several new ones before pulling his. Also. He also couldn't get the fans to cool the truck enough. He followed the enterprises kit I believe. I'd just like to see someone do it properly with some success as well.
So..seeing two people have issues, the thermostats can be tricky. A switch probably is best for now and keep an eye on those temps running it the first couple times. The factory temp gauge isn't the most accurate
