Part 1: The Stock Piping

Over the last month we have been going all out on the Titan XD, and we are pleased to report our progress on the hot- and cold-side intercooler pipes. As with most development projects, we first examined the factory components in order to see how we might improve them. At first glance, the intercooler pipes appear to be your average factory aluminized steel pipes. Further inspection, however, revealed that these pipes were not in good condition. The hot-side pipe had a bit of oily film coating the inside and worse still, the cold-side pipe had a startling coating of rust. Yes, you read that right; the pipe that supplies cool air to this brand-new truck’s turbo is coated with rust.

Needless to say we immediately went to work mapping out the shape of our pipes on the CMM (coordinate measuring machine) to move this project along ASAP. The diameter of the factory piping is sufficient for the Titan XD at this stage of modification, so we are planning to keep the piping at 2.5” in diameter. Our intercooler piping will eliminate a few slight bends for a smoother flow, and more importantly, the all-aluminum construction will eliminate this rust issue. Take a look at what our intercooler pipes will look like, and let us know what you think!

Coming Up!

In our next post we will take a look at what goes into fabricating our prototypes and how well they fit on the Titan XD.

Stay Tuned!

Part 2: Final Prototype

In our last post, we ended with a rendering of the Nissan Titan XD intercooler pipes and the jig that we plan to use to fabricate them. Since then, we began fabricating our prototypes and testing fitment.

Before we could begin welding our prototypes, we first had to fabricate our jig. With the help of the trusty waterjet, we sliced the pieces for the jig and began assembling them.

With the jig assembled, Mike fired up the welder and got to work on our prototype. Although the measurements that we took with our CMM (coordinate measuring machine) in the last post should be accurate, we tack-welded the pipes first to check fitment on our Titan.

Looks like our jig is spot on! With fitment confirmed, it was up to Mike to finish our prototypes.

These awesome aluminum masterpieces are finished! We can all sleep better knowing that our brand-new shop vehicle is sporting these rust-free aluminum pipes. Paired with our DuraCore™ boots, our Titan just got a preventive upgrade that also looks great.
