The supercharger on your F-150 Lightning creates plenty of extra horsepower and torque. It also creates plenty of heat! To help fight air intake temperature spikes, the intake manifold has an intercooler built into it. This intercooler (IC) uses coolant to help it stay cool and reduce air intake temperatures as the compressed air is forced through it. This coolant is pumped to through the IC via the intercooler pump. It is routed through a front mounted heat exchanger which reduces the coolant temps.
As these trucks are starting to age it is not uncommon to have an intercooler pump fail. Thankfully Ford Racing has come to the rescue with their M-8501-MSVT intercooler pump. It is a direct replace for 99-04 SVT Lightnings, 03-04 Terminator Cobras and 07-14 Shelby GT500s. If yours is bad, follow the simple removal and installation instructions below. You will be back on the road in no time!
