Intercooler/spyder?

I picked up an intercooler pretty cheap and just picked up a spyder from a junkyard for $50. Its off of an intercooled 7.3 but not sure what year. Will this work for me and what should i do about the extra holes for extra sensors? Do i just plug them off with some short bolts?

So i think i fudged up and answered my own question, only early 99 will work, right? Right were it comes off the turbo is larger on later models and unfortunatly thats what i bought for $50. Can anyone confirm this for me before i even try to return it to the scrap yard?

Yes, you will need a spider from an early 99. And you are correct. The later ones have a larger turbo connection. You can buy one new from Powerstrokeshop.com

You could get the larger diameter intake plenums... that would work with the bottom of the spider.

They are 13 mm bolts... you'll also need a 13 mm wrench - for the one by the front cover.

I believe i have the right spyder now. Has the smaller diameter i need. Only has two nipples on the pipes going to the motor and in the middle of em has one electrical conector. Do i remove these and plug them off? The 6.0 in the scrap yard has all good intercooler parts. So im deff buying the 6.0 intercooler. Now i just need pipes and brackets. Do the 6.0 pipes work or do i need 7.3 pipes? Also what will be needed for brackets? Should i buy the brackets off the 6.0?
