Can i do this?

A few weeks back i pulled my intercooler pipe back off to finish polishing it up after doing the foil delete. I noticed that a bolt had rubbed a hole about the size of a dime through my IC pipe.
We've got a 94 F-450 that gets driven maybe a handfull or so times a year. Will the IC pipe off of it fit on my truck sorry if its a stupid question just looking for a fix.
What should my boost numbers be on my truck if i didnt have the hole in my IC pipe? Right now crusing i barely see 4lbs, uphill with my foot layed into it i can barely hit 12-15. Im sure this is due to the hole.

well i dont think the 94 will have an intercooler. but that is why your boost is low... you should have able to can it from a stop and see 18 - 21 psi no problem

I don't think they will work. Typically the obs guys are buying our stuff to convert their trucks.

Just go to a local junkyard or call them and check them out. You might just get one for 10-20 bucks.
