6.0 IC on 7.3?

My friend offered me his 6.0 IC for free. Do these make a difference on the 7.3s? If so, what? And what do I need to hook it up?

I'm running one on mine. Helps keep EGT's down when towing. I needed to change out my boots to run the intercooler. The diameters between the 7.3's and 6.0's outlets are different.

Please note that the 6.0 flows in the opposite direction as the 7.3, so you will want to really clean it out good before putting it in a 7.3.

It makes a nice noise, other than that, I don't see much real benefit. I've heard that it takes away top end boost, but gives more bottom end boost.

I put it on during a turbo rebuild because I needed a new compressor wheel due to some scarring on my original wheel.

6.0 intercooler drops egts 50-100 degrees.
dieselsite and riffraff sell the intercooler boots needed when you do the swap.

a newer billet wheel is much better than the original cast 10 blade wheel

i can say this because i have ran both and the new billet wheels are huge improvement
