at that level no, but by no means will it hurt. if you tow alot and your egt's are running high, then an open exhuast and intercooler setup would help.

I thought that it would be but maybe not. It wouldn't hurt and it can be done cheap

In my case NO. I was running stage 1s with a stock turbo and the I/C showed me almost no gain. I agree with whats stated above. If your not having EGT problems currently I would waste your time.
