Which intercooler is the best?

I am in the middle of my cummins swap and want to get a stout intercooler to put in since mine has the one with the plastic ends, which are know to fail.

I am just curious who makes the best intercooler for the 6.0? I saw that Spearco makes one with cast ends and has got really good reviews.

Any suggestions?

My vote goes to the Spearco Dan. I think you will find most people agree on that.

Thanks. AFE has a new one out called the bladerunner that looks promising. Has Spearco fixed the problems with their end caps blowing? I read quite a few people had problems even with the aluminum end caps blowing.

Anyone have anymore knowledge on this. I'm leaning towards a banks.

Also wondering if it's going to be a pain install with my bpd oil cooler in there.

Stay away from any intercooler that has a radiator type fins(banks)... Sperco I believe and I think afe use a plate style heat exchanger in there intercoolers. This is very efficient compared to oem, banks, etc..

Exhaust, definitely.

*edit*

Wait a second - if you already have 4" (your sig) then intercooler.

Stock vs stock, exhaust > intercooler!

Ported intake first than intercooler. Your truck would benefit more from that than an intercooler at this point. And it's cheaper too.
