6.0 intercooler swap

So i see more and more of these running around, guys who dump there 7.3 intercooler for the 6.0, I was told by a guy that works on mostly ford diesels that it doesbt seem worth it to him cause the tank ends are plastic. i want more input on these from some of you guys is it a good idea with the mods i have (listed in sig)??

I think some of the 6oh cooler do have aluminum ends. Like 03-04 years.

But either way they cool a lot better and flow better than the 7.3 it is worth up to 150 I think..

Of if you have the cash to throw down get a banks or spearco.

P.S. my advice will cost you the trade of your bed haha kidding.

Me too. I see about the same running empty and maybe 50 deg less pulling 12k. not worth it unless you get it for very cheap. I only paid $50 for it. I was going to replace my boots anyway so that was a wash. I then sold my old IC to an OBS guy for $50 so it was free to me.

Just a basic 01 F350 CCLB SRW -Good from a far but far from good
