How much PSI can the stock I/C take

I heard that the plastic end tanks on the innerccooler will blow out after 40 PSI??? Is that true???

I would say that that is a pretty fair estimate although I've seen/heard of them blowing out at lower boost pressures. Mine has seen 40 or so more than once with no issues, but (knock on wood) I consider myself lucky. Depending on what you're doing with your truck you should probably look at something aftermarket like the Banks Technicooler.

I was just thinking about a 2000 7.3 all aluminum? You can pick those up prety cheap. DO you think that will fit in the stock location?

People swap the 6.0 intercooler in place of the 7.3 one because it is taller and for some people has dropped EGTs 100+ degrees.

Now if it was a full on, single purpose truck, like for racing/sled pulling, then it would work, but for a driver, it'd just be
