2015 + Mustang ECOBoost Big Intercooler & Charge Pipe Upgrade From CV Fabrication

We were working on a 2017 Mustang ECOBoost 2.3L Convertible. We did this install Without having to pull the front bumper, By moving the radiator assembly to gain access to a little more room to remove and install the Intercooler.

This should be the same method on 2015 + Mustang ECOBoost.

The Big Intercooler & Charge Pipe Kit Set From CV Fabrication. This Intercooler was a Defect from CV Fab so Some additional modifications were needed for this Install.

The Intercooler runs at $339.99 While the Charge Pipe Kits runs at $199.99. 

We started off by removing the Cawl panel to gain access to the Radiator Support (Not to Remove the Radiator) Just to move it back enough to clear the intercooler. We unbolted the coolant tank and tied it back out of the way. 

Then We removed the Bottom panel, Lower support brace, Disconnected the Map sensor Connector, (Located on the driver side of Intercooler). Then We had access to the Intercooler itself, It has one 10mm bolt on the passenger side and the driver side is a locking tab. 

Next We removed the Cold side Charge pipe from the intercooler and throttle body by removing the 2 clamps. 

The Hot side has some push in clips, bypass valve and two clamps that needs removed. 

Then We had to separate the A/C condenser from the radiator assembly, there is a few clips along a shield that ties the two together. 

Then just lift up on the Radiator assembly to  pop it up and out of the lower mounts.

The Intercooler comes out simply by sliding the passenger side out first and then it comes right out. 

Because We had the Defect Intercooler, It was a mis-drilled unit. The Instructions directed Us to remove the dowel from the Map sensor, Instead We ground down the one side that it needed the extra room in order for the bolt to line up, This way it had a little more bite in the sensor mounting. 

The New Intercooler fit Great, Although the Cold side Charge pipe was just to snug of a fit. 

Over all We liked the Quality of manufacturing of the parts from CV Fab.
