After Banks’ engineers carefully studied the stock intercoolers for the 1994-1997 Ford 7.3L Powerstroke, they decided to upgrade everything for superior results. The Techni-Cooler’s thicker core area delivers impressive flow volume for more continuous power and an inlet that distributes air evenly across the intercooler — since the stock manifold inlet flows more air to one side of the cylinder bank than the other — Banks designed and developed an innovative Twin-Ram manifold inlet assembly that flows air evenly to both sides for smooth, even power delivery.
Banks’ Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) designed, rugged cast aluminum end tanks on the Techni-Cooler insure durability and slick air flow. The same can’t be said for welded-up sheet tanks. Air doesn’t flow well with square corners, and the welds break at high boost when performance is needed the most.
Banks’ Techni-Cooler improves airflow into and out of the intercooler with big mandrel-bent 3" boost tubes. These large, rugged, high-efficiency cast end tanks won’t rupture under high-boost conditions. With a huge inlet and outlet as well as a larger core area the Techni-Cooler provides an improvement in volume.
