intercooler questions!!!!!

My father-in-law and me are looking at putting an intercooler on his 1995 F-250,
we have been looking into it and are kind of confused about which intakes will fit his truck, and also will stock pipes off a superduty 7.3L fit an OBS 7.3L? We do know that we have to change his intake we just arent sure if one off of a superduty will fit it. any help will be greatly appreciated!

Get a super duty 7.3 powerstroke intercooler. Make sure to get the all aluminum kind as the plastic ones tend to crack. There is a guy (I have his email somewhere I will try and find it for you) that makes custom intercooler pipes for $200. Then you need an early 99 intake spyder as it has the 2" intakes as opposed to the 3" that the late 99 and later trucks have.

Awesome, if you can find his email that would be great! We just bought an intercooler out of a 99 7.3 today for $40, it was an early 99 but sadly someone had already robbed the intake off of it.

Good luck with that email address. I have been trying sense Janurary. My plan is to take it to a exhaust shop whenever I get around to installin my IC.

so ur going to use exhaust pipe? i have thought about just using that but when i talked to my father in law about it he said no, and since it is his truck i didnt argue. but i think that that would be a nice easy route to go instead of finding someone to make these damn things out of aluminium.

I ordered a CX Racing intercooler, I haven't installed it yet, or received it for that matter, but it looks to be a quality kit. After I added up piecing it all together, I found out its the same price or maybe a little less to just buy a kit.
