6.0 inter cooler in my 7.3

Hi guys I picked up a 6.0 intercooler from a buddy for $40 bucks. So I was hoping to talk to some that has done it before. Because I have gathered that I need longer boost hoses and move the trans cooler?? I have a 6sp so that won't matter much. O ya I have a 02 four door 4x4 6sp 7.3.

Thanks for the input.

I put one in a few years ago, cost me about $20 after selling my old one. There was no noticeable drop in EGT. I didn't have to move the trans cooler but did need new boots, IIRC one was adapting the size slightly. I would put the new cooler up on ebay for $150-200 and use the money towards something more beneficial.

better off saving money for something else.
most people dont get any benefit from the 6.0 intercooler. some say 50 degree drop in egts which is minimal anyways.
not worth the time or money
