New AFE Blade Runner Intercooler Tube for 6.4L Powerstroke

Part# 46-20078

If you own a 6.4 Powerstroke, then you have noticed the restricted factory intercooler pipe. AFE has spent years perfecting factory flaws that diesel manufacturers let slide. A diesel engine is a giant air pump, the faster we can get air into the engine and back out, the more efficient the engine will be. Many manufacturers are using plastic intercooler end tanks as well as plastic intercooler pipes. These have proven to be very weak and a constant failure point in the industry. Upgrading your plastic factory intercooler pipes to stainless steel or aluminum aftermarket intercooler pipes will help prevent failures on the road that will leave you stranded and can potentially cause catastrophic engine failure.

AFE has gone a step further on their replacement intercooler pipes for the 6.4L Powerstroke, they have provided pre-welded bungs threaded in 1/8th inch NPT. This will allow for the installation of aftermarket boost gauges as well as injectables such as water methanol or nitrous.

The 100% silicone boots are better than the factory rubberized intercooler boots. The crank case vents back into the intake system on the 6.4 which means there is inevitably going to be oil in the intercooler pipes. That oil will eat the factory rubber boots, where the silicone boots will last a lifetime.

aFe introduces you to the BladeRunner intercooler outlet tube for your 2008-2010 Ford diesel Powerstroke with the V8-6.4L (td) engine. This passenger-side tube upgrade represents the next generation of diesel performance products by removing restriction that hinders flow. In recent testing this tube upgrade out-flowed the stock tube by 15%. This cold side intercooler tube is mandrel-bent with smooth bend radii for increased air-flow over the factory intercooler tube. This performance tube also provides two 1/8″ NPT ports for user accessories and is finished off with a unique aFe power plate for an aggressive stylish look. Included with this performance intercooler tube are premium stainless steel T-bolt clamps and high-temp silicone couplings for strength and a perfect fit.


Perfect Fit:

This intercooler tube lines up directly to factory mounting locations and comes complete with silicone couplings, hoses and premium stainless steel T-bolt clamps used to securely mount the tube. Fits aFe’s and OE intercooler.

Flow and Performance:

The intercooler tube is constructed of 3″ mandrel bent powder-coated stainless steel tubing for maximum flow. Smooth transition bends decrease turbulence, increasing horsepower, torque and reduced EGT’s.

aFe Badging:

A unique stainless steel laser-cut aFe power logo plate is welded-on for an aggressive style.

1/8″ NPT Ports:

Two 1/8″ NPT ports are provided for user accessories.
