Talking aftermarket intercoolers

with all the intercoolers out there what setup did you use and what
was the temp change with your setup before and after affects.
What was the temps you was running pulling or hot rodding or just
plain driving around.

Trying to find what would work well for i tow at my max for my truck.
I have a 99 f250 auto 4x4 with dual exhaust power pup and aem
brute force intake, with a heavy duty rebuilt trans. The guy before
me had the trans built so i would not have to come out of the truck
again. One other question how can you tell the difference between
a 7.3 trans cooler and a 6.0 trans cooler.

well the difference between the 7.3 and 6oh trans coolers is about 400%. the 6oh cooler is almost 4 times the size of the 7.3 cooler. its a good upgrade to keep the temps down. as far as intercoolers any of the aftermarket i/c's will suit you. id go with either a spearco-hypermax-diesel innovations. all good setups.......

a bigger turbo exhaust housing will also help with egt's......

the 6oh trans cooler is probably atleast 3 times larger than the factory 7.3 trans cooler. as for an aftermarket intercooler id suggest one from Diesel Innovations, its a very nice piece and cooled my egt's down quite a bit.

time for a vacation, ban me

huge difference

thats a huge difference in the trans cooler. The other question was at
how much can it drop egt with stock turbo compared to a aftermarket
turbo. When i pull this setup i get 900 dg temps on normal flat ground
thats before the turbo. Maybe a little less depending on outside temp.
how hard is it to install the 6.0 trans cooler.

While I agree that the pic of the 7.3 trans cooler and the pic of the 6.0 trans cooler shows a HUGE difference.. we aren't debating trans coolers. We're debating intercoolers. So showing a 7.3 vs a 6.0 inter cooler would have been a better debate
