SDP has designed a hot side/driver side IC pipe for the 2001-2010 Duramax trucks that fits perfectly with the stock turbo in place. Each pipe is made in house using precision tig welding with mandrel bent tubing. To get the best possible fitment, we came up with a design that took us longer to make but the result is easier install and no fitment issues for you, the installer. The silicone boots that we include are made for us with an additive to the silicone that helps them hold up to the high tempuratures which the hot side pipe will see.
This is a high quality 3" replacement for the factory drivers side 2.5" intercooler pipe. The factory silicone boots are known for being weak and failing under pressure, we include high quality silicone boots that we've proven to handle over 100psi! This intercooler pipe is made to work with the factory turbo and factory intercooler
