intercooler Q!

Hey guys, I just recently hit a deer with my truck and im in the process of putting it back together, i need to know if there is a better intercooler than the stock one that yall would recomend. I work in the parts department at a ford dealership and can get a stock one for cost (less than $400) but i didnt know if there was one that was more bang for the buck and better or not or if i should just stick with a stocker. And i dont pull anything often that a gas burner cant pull so something extreme is not necessary. Any help is greatly appreciated! s

Temps are a lil lower... 50-100* so why not, if you can get one at a decent cost.

I can't find it right now, but there's a youtube video about it. It basically drops in but I can't remember exactly what, if anything, you need to modify. Then only differance is the 6.0 one is taller so you get more cooling.

I have seen some places say you have to do a little massaging on the stock tranny cooler lines with the 6.0.

That's all sounds pretty straight forward I been wanting a new one but ain't dropping 1 grand on it but my buddy got a 6.0 banks intercooler and the power ell and the intake for 500 he said it was over 1600 worth but I could have for 600 that sound like a good deal?
