SPE Motorsport is proud to finally introduce our upgraded intercooler/intake piping kit for the 6.7L Powerstroke. This kit replaces the restrictive factory plastic upper intake and cast aluminum lower intake. SPE has developed our kits to cover 2011-2019 trucks, 15-19 VGT, and also Non-VGT turbo kits. The SPE piping kit includes all aluminum polished piping, cast aluminum Y manifold, 5-ply silicone couplers, t-bolts clamps, and hardware.
The SPE cast aluminum Y manifold has a true 3” internal diameter unlike the rest of the kits on the market, along with cast-in injectable bosses and the use of factory style o-ring gaskets for ease of installation and replacement. The cast Y manifold is available in raw or micro-wrinkle black powder coat.
The cold side pipe is 3.5” diameter unlike the more common 3” seen in most competitor's kits. This not only helps with flow but also gives your engine bay a bolder, tougher look. SPE also includes a welded on billet IAT bung so that it can be installed and used as the manufacture intended. This, too, is not commonly seen in competitor's kits. In our experience, this is an integral part in collecting data and for PCM functionality.
With so many customers already having cold air intakes previously installed, SPE wanted to make our kit so that you could use that investment and not have to sell or get rid of it. We include a high quality rotomolded adapter that cleanly connects all stock and aftermarket cold air kits to your turbo with multiple adapter options based on turbo style and truck. This piping kit is an excellent match for the SPE Emperor Turbo System.
The SPE 6.7L Emperor Turbo Kit is a 100% drop-in turbo system for the 2011-2019 6.7L Powerstroke. This system is the perfect solution for the enthusiast wanting the reliability of a non- VGT turbo or the ability to support more power with their 6.7L Powerstroke. It can also be used as a replacement for the problematic Garrett GT32 single sequential turbocharger (SST) found on the 2011-2014 year model.
Due to the way SPE has designed the turbo system it is an effortless upgrade/replacement turbo option that even a novice can install. In fact, the hardest part is removing the factory turbo.
This turbo system does NOT require any extra components*. It can be used as a 100% drop in replacement or as an upgrade. It uses the factory driver’s side manifold and an included, SPE designed, aftermarket passenger side manifold. This kit maintains the factory driver side up pipe (passenger side up pipe and manifold are no longer used), 2015+ style downpipe, 15+ lower intake manifold, and 11-19 upper intake manifold.
The system is capable of supporting stock power levels all the way up to 800hp.

It is now also available with a ball bearing turbocharger in an s363, s366, & s370. When driving with the cartridge ball bearing turbocharger you will find an exceptionally crisp and strong throttle response. We are seeing 15% faster spool up than traditional journal bearings across the board on the three available sizes we offer. This also helps with lowering EGTs and intake temps.

NEXT LEVEL DESIGN
When SPE went into developing this system they wanted to eliminate the problems that currently plague kits on the market; one being the turbo up pipes. All other non-VGT turbo kits on the market require one or two custom up pipes. This seems great when it’s sold to the customer as if though its an upgrade. Unfortunately, it is not, in our opinion. The problem with custom up pipes is the fact that they are a wear item. The bellows that allow for expanding and contracting are the actual wear item. Metal can only expand and contract so many times before cracking. When this happens to an aftermarket kit (not an if but when) you have to get another set of uppipes. Now this is where the main problem comes into play, availability. Even in the best circumstances, 1-2 days can really hinder the customer with a $50,000+ immobile paperweight.
SPE has removed this issue from the equation by eliminating the need for it. The SPE Emperor Turbo System still utilizes a bellow in the factory driver side up pipe which is still retained. Thus creating a system that only has one up pipe and it can be replaced with a factory part available via a Ford dealership or auto parts store.
The main hurdle in the design was doing all of the design work and still keeping it drop in capable all while still utilizing the factory intake manifolds. This helped in keeping the kit cost down for the customer just wanting to only replace the turbo and not all of their intake piping.
The SPE Emperor Turbo System also utilizes a standard T4 Flange on the exhaust manifold. The kit was designed to use the exhaust manifold allowing you to change turbo size without having to change to different up pipes even if moving to a different frame turbo size all together such as when going from an s300 to an s400. This is unlike most other comparable kits on the market.
This system was also designed with modularity in mind. SPE wants our customers to be able to start with the basic system if they choose, and be able to upgrade later with minimal cost and waste.
