7.3 & 6.0 Intercooler

working on my truck last night (my 02) and i noticed the intercooler in it has the black plastic ends. i thought that the 7.3 intercoolers were all alum. and the 6.0 had the plastic ends... is that right??? if so then my 02 has a 6.0 intercooler in it.

No. some 7.3's had aluminum ends and some had plastic ends. I think they had aluminum ends for earlier models and plastic for the later ones. You have a 7.3 intercooler unless your previous owner swapped it. I had the plastic ends 7.3 intercooler until i swapped out for the 6.0 plastic end intercooler.

did the 6.0L intercooler fit? my trans cooler inlet and outlet lines interfere with placement of the 6.0 intercooler. It won't drop down enough. I am going to have to swap out trans coolers for one with tubes exiting the bottom so the new intercooler will fit.

Wow that's a lot, I hate towing and need to get fuel. People are not courteous enough to give you any space or consideration when you have a big trailer. They see me trying to line up and still get in the way or not more when they have the opportunity.
