Help with intercooler

I am a new owner of a 97 power stroke and am looking at different things to make it run better. My first question is what kinda intercooler should I put on if any. I have a ts 6 position, intake, straight pipe and boost relieve value. Also as I reading this what is the obs thing that I see people talking about. I'm also thinking about meth injection. I'm just waiting for my buddy to finish his first. Any help would be awesome.

OBS refers to year of truck, 94-97.
Why do you have a boost relief valve?
The fuel leak is in the valley of the engine, there is a drain in the rear of the valley that makes it run out by the trans

It depends. Do you have gauges?

If your EGTs are too high one might be a good idea. An intercooler dropped mine by about 150-200 degrees. Yes, they help build more power by introducing cooler air.
