Anyone seen or know of a kit that will allow for a hidden winch in the bumper on the Ecoboosts? My understanding is they don't work on the ecoboost due to the inter cooler but certainly someone will figure this out....

Any winch mounted in front of the intercooler will block a lot of air to it. I plan to run a winch and installed Full Race's front mount intercooler which moves it from the factory location to behind the grille. The next thing for me to do is get the rough country hidden winch plate and then install it and a winch.

I checked out the Full Race kit. Too steep for me, but I have no plans to install a winch. But it's good to know of a relocation kit.
Got any pics of your installation to share?

Yeah it was a little pricey, but I was part of the initial buy and got it at a discounted price.

Nope, I've since decided to get a f350 6.7l diesel before I ever ordered the hidden winch plate or the winch.

Have you noticed an increase in your engine temp or oil temp? Seeing it ia fully covering the radiator and seems like it would affect the air flow.

New truck is still a couple months out.
ah ok.. just wondering.. did you install the upgraded intercooler yourself? or did you have someone else do it? looked over the instructions on full-races website... doesn't seem too complicated, however, i'm not exactly a mechanic.

Pretty easy to do by oneself.
Awesome! Any issues with the intercooler? how about warranty? (it is bolt on so don't see it voiding warranty)... It just seems odd.. Ford made such a big deal about leaving the gaping hole in the front bumper open for air and now we are relocating the intercooler to the rear.. anyways.. just ruling out all doubts before i go ahead and order :)
