Aftermarket ones are not important. Many of us use parts from the SD 7.3 as they are great for our purpose. I would say there are a few mods u should do first b4 looing into an intercooler setup. What kind of mods do u have now

FRANK THE TANK
DIY INTAKE - HYDRA CHIP - MARTY'S E-FUEL - 250/200s
05 AXLE SWAP 3.73 - 2.5" PURE PERF. LIFT COILS - FOX SHOCKS
BTS TRANS - TYMAR DOWN PIPE - 4" EXHAUST
Waiting To Be Installed... gtx4294r, studs, springs, HPOP?

all i have right now is stage 2 AFE intake, and 4" turbo back exhaust. looking to improve my tourqe mostly, not really sure what kind of turner to buy. im leaning more towards an SCT flash tuner. what do ya think? (gauges bought not yet installed, EGT, turbo, Trans temp.)

Not if its burned correctly, but as far as flash tuners I had an edge and it about roasted my last trucks transmission, kept the gauge at 210+ all the time. My ts style chip with tony Wildman tunes I was running 180 in death valley on a 126* day, running round town I rarely see over 160, and when towing I've gone a 6% grade hauling an excursion for 3 miles and never went above 180 either. Good luck

You can get custom tuned chips for your truck that are made for "your truck". That edge is bada** but if you have a auto consider it done. I got a gold super chip id sell cheap. I know its for a 7.3 but not sure if itll work on an obs

These trucks with NO intercooler are MUCH better at controlling heat/egt's than other motors like an IC'd 12v. Cummins get REAL hot, even stock.. these trucks can take a good amount of mods and they still might not get very hot.

I've hit 1500+ no ic and nothing but canned tunes on many occasions, they handle heat well but an ic would be a good idea later
