If you plan on injectors in the future, I would use that $1000 bucks to get a fuel system in place. No sense having larger injectors if you can't give them fuel. Power will be down and you run the risk of damaging new sticks.
You can go DIY for $4-500, or buy a kit and have all of the fittings/pumps/brackets/lines/wiring on hand and ready to go for closer to $1k.

Used intercoolers from SD's can be found anywhere from $175-350 on ebay or craigs.

I bought a brand new mishimoto 6.0L aluminum intercooler for my truck, hopefully everything fits!

I paid about $845 from riffraff. I was told that you can find them for like $750 on eBay but I couldn't find anything.

The reason I bought the Mishimoto 6.0 intercooler was because I wanted the all aluminum intercooler. I read a few horror stories of people blowing the plastic end caps on the stock 6.0 intercooler off with high boost.

I'll probably be pushing 40-50 psi with my modded h2e(:
