nobody makes performance inter-cooler pipes for the stock inter-cooler.
the banks inter-cooler comes with different pipes.
i would look on craigslist or ebay for some used stock inter-cooler pipes

I was trying to find new pipes without buying a new intercooler. Im buying a ball bearing turbo so im wondering if i should upgrade my intercooler for better airflow?

Usually everyone uses the stock pipes unless they are running a custom turbo setup. You could always clean them up and paint them. What are you trying to accomplish?

Im trying to create better airflow. I am replacing my stock turbo with a ball bearing turbo and thought that making my intercooler pipes alittle bigger for better airflow would help.

Didn't see the other posts when I replied... There really isn't anything to gain in changing the IC pipes. You could get a aftermarket IC to drop temps slightly but unless your running big injectors it won't gain you anything. I am assuming your going with the 38r. That in itself will make a difference, just make sure you have a good free flowing air filter.

Im not sure which turbo im going to go with. been researching alot and i havnt made up my mind there are alot of good ball bearing turbos out there that fit my 2000 7.3. Did you upgrade to a better turbo in your truck? I have an S&B intake and CFM intake manifolds 4'' MBRP TS 6 position, WW2 wheel.

I have a 38r in my 00. Also have a WW2 for it that I would have installed already if the torque converter didn't come apart on me. Just stock injectors for now, will eventually put some 238/100's in it but I see no point in changing the IC pipes, maybe the IC if temps get too high with bigger sticks. The 38r is really the only drop in ball bearing turbo for these trucks that would use the stock style IC tube setup. Anything else requires a new mount along with the plumbing. The real question is how big do you want to go?

I eventually want black coal rolling out of my tail pipe! But i do alittle at a time and all my work myself and im not a machanic. But eventually i want to go with one shot injectors and a new IC. I need some more mods and a good turbo for my truck. One that i can stick in and keep upgrading parts and the turbo still being strong enough without having t upgrade it a better turbo later. So your saying if i try togo with a bigger turbo then the G38R ill need to upgrade my IC?

Upgrading the IC could help to bring EGT down a bit but it's not always necessary. The IC pipes will probably have to be replaced if you use something bigger than a 38r. The T4 mount setup is probably the most common for larger turbos on these trucks. It will replace your up pipes, spyder and potentially your IC pipes too.
