Intercooler selection

I found a salvage yard local to me that has several 7.3 and 6.0 trucks. The 7.3 intercoolers are $150 and the 6.0 are $200. My question is basically which one should I get? Its only a $50 difference but I have heard that the 6.0 cooler only makes like a 50* difference if that. Any insight is appreciated.

The 6.0 cooler is obviously more efficient, but you can get the 7.3 one with metal ends and not have to worry in a high boost application of blowing the end off

I would go with the cheaper 7.3 Cooler with the metal end caps. Some of the later 7.3s have plastic caps like the 6.0 Which blow caps after 40psi
