Innercooler upgrade?

I was wondering if a more suitable innercooler is necessary when upgrading from a stock turbo to a 38R. I'm looking for efficiency with a new turbo & other mods, rather than additional power as the foremost goal. Thanks for the input.

My friend has an 01 with at 38r and stock inter cooler. He got a huge performance boost as expected, but a bigger intercooler would definitely improve performance.

Thanks for the response. I figured that was the case, but was not sure.

Some guys are using the intercooler from the 6.0.
Much bigger, and more efficient!

Theres nothing wrong with the stock 7.3's... but a 6.0 IC is a great bolt-in upgrade.

Th 6.0 IC is not worth it unless you get it for free. I saw 0 difference in temps and the size is almost identical.
