Banks Techni-Cooler Intercooler system includes mandrel-bent 3 high-flow boost tubes large, high-efficiency all-aluminum end tanks instead of the wimpy stock plastic ones that can rupture under high-boost conditions a high-flow inlet that distributes air evenly across the intercooler for an 18% increase in flow and more effective cooling a wide-open outlet and a thicker core area with impressive volume. Because the stock manifold inlet in early 99 Power Strokes flows more air to one side of the cylinder bank than to the other, Banks developed an innovative Twin-Ram manifold inlet assembly that flows air equally to both sides of the engine for smooth, even power delivery
Techni-Cooler provides the maximum reduction in boost air temperature with a minimal loss of boost pressure. Cooling the air makes it denser and more oxygen rich, improving combustion and engine efficiency. Result: higher continuous power and more power at any exhaust gas temp (EGT), better fuel economy and lower EGTs. What could be cooler than that? Mounting hardware included.

Larger and more effective charge-air coolers increase air density by substantially reducing the temperature of the pressurized air from the turbocharger to the intake manifold. By lowering boost air temperature, the denser air is more oxygenated and allows complete fuel combustion. There is also an excellent byproduct of lower intake air temperatures; they produce lower EGTs. If EGTs never build to the temperature where the computer tuner limits fuel delivery, all of the additional power is always available. Lower EGTs also help to reduce the thermal load on the engine and its cooling system, which keeps them running cooler as well.
With that being said, cooling the air makes it denser and more oxygen rich, improving combustion and engine efficiency. The results of this are more power, better fuel economy and lower EGTs. The amount of HP gained is not specified.
Well-engineered charge-air cooler cores and end tanks with greater airflow also reduce pressure loss, which improves air density further. Within some factory charge-air coolers, the airflow inside is so poor that some cooling passages don’t even get used. In turbo-speak, charge-air cooler effectiveness is measured by its percentage of increase of temperature recovery as compared to ambient air temperature.
