superduty intercooler and stage 1 injectors

I am wanting to get the diy Stage 1 injectors.

But not sure if i should add the superduty intercooler first. Is it really needed if you dont do much towing and arent drag racing all the time?

Is there any cheaper aftermarket turbo's that could keep the egt's down with out haveing to go to the extent of the intercooler?


i Have a 97 f250 powerstroke with 4inch exhaust and intake, new transmisson, with a transgo shift kit. thanks!

Any info would help a bunch

First off do you have guages? Also do you have a chip, if not you need a custom chip otherwise stage 1 injectors will act stock since they have stock nozzles. And yes I would highly suggest adding an SD intercooler if you are doing stage 1s

TW is a good place for sure, swamps is good as well, I just switched to try something different. But yeah without the intercooler and the 1s my egts and boost were way high and the intercooler solved that
