Intercooler question

A few questions from a newbie hungry for knowledge:

1. is this an upgrade that you guys would say is relatively important? Where in the "natural" order of priorities does it fall when looking for more power and lower EGTs (i.e. what would you get before this)?

2. any strong opinions on vendor? spearco? Afe? Banks?

Thank you much for your thoughts.

The afe unit is nice. I would do this and a cold side pipe that will see your biggest loss in egts.

I guess the question is, do you want to leave it stock?
The best bang for the buck is to remove the doc/dpf and a tuner. I got my stuff from Aaron at Rudy's.

I've got a Banks Ram-Air, Banks exhaust and an H&S Mini Max. Just seemed like an intercooler would make sense next. I don't want to spend the $ on the serious stuff like upgraded turbo, head studs, etc.

I was leaning towards Banks but I just wanted to confirm this was smart and not just because they have better marketing than the rest.

You probably won't notice any difference except for the lighter wallet. I'll be buying a Banks for the '08 I'm rebuilding, but only because it needs an intercooler anyway and I don't want to buy new OEM.

Yep, that's the only guarantee on this deal. About $1k lighter.

i know a guy who put one on his 6.7 dodge and it made a huge difference. I am not sure about your truck. I think you will notice some difference.
