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.

Also I changed my oil and down the front of my transmission there is a fuel leak. I'm not sure where it is coming from

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.

I am original owner of 97 Extended Cab 4x4 with 86,000 miles, Unlimited Diesel 175/30 Stage 1.5 Injectors, ATS Intercooler, Tony Wildman 6 Position Chip, 4" Turbo Back Diamond Eye Exhaust, Stealth SPR1 HPOP, Wicked Wheel 2, Hypermax Combo Boost/EGT Gauge, DIY Intake, FPR Mod, CCV Mod, IDM Mod, 203 degree T Stat, Stainless Steel High Pressure Crossover Line, Fitch Fuel Catalyst, 40,000 lb. Trucool Max Transmission Cooler. Next up a Bean's D-66, electric fuel, torque converter and a valve body.
