^To put it simply yes. The intercooler is nice for towing but with good tuning there are a couple guys on here making 500 HP without it. The injectors in your truck add in the range of 140cu. mm of fuel per squirt. Your '96 only adds 96cu. mm in the same pulse. Smaller squirt less performance. You can use your AD code injectors in your '96 but you'll need tuning and a bigger HPOP (twice the firing twice the needed oil. Adding in your '00 style 17* HPOP would cost nearly the same amount as adding an aftermarket T500, better option for both trucks) to make it work as the AD's squirt twice to the AA's "single shot's" in the '96.
The turbo. The T38 turbo in your '00 flows closer to 900 cu. feet / min to our 700. Your '00 turbo also uses a .90 turbine to simulate more performance when it's only really just adding boost in at a lower RPM to your '96's with a 1.10 housing (the reason for the slower off the line but strong long powerband. Swapping in a 1.0 housing onto your current turbine isn't hard and it's cheap). Adding your style turbo to the '96 isn't easy or cheap but it can be done. A D66 will easily take you to near 500 levels and it's a lot easier to install. Cheap upgrades to your '96 are the complete replacement of your exhaust and intake. Something Ford got wrong with the early PowerStrokes that was fixed on your '00.
Moral off he story is that your '96 can be very powerful but there are more things to buy then just a chip. My '97 easily walks over most trucks up to '08 but I've spent $10,000+ in mods and supplemental upgrades.
