Aftermarket Intercoolers

First off, are they worth it? Second, what will they actually do for you?

they will drop your EGT's so yes they are worth it but not until your making big power or if EGT's is an issue.... since you got a 7.3L i would just suggest to upgrade to the 6.0 IC for like 250 bucks.. its a lil bigger than the stock 7.3L

you can usually find them on ebay

yep, the 6.0 is about 33% larger overall and will fit right in.

You will see very little drop in EGT's with the 6.0 IC. About 50-75 loaded and nothing empty... Altho bigger, it still has the same bottle necks the factory IC has.

The biggest IC out right now is the sperco 6.0, thats what I will be getting when I have the cash.

hypermax tapercore is probably the biggest, but its also the most expensive.
