Would I benefit from a 6.0 CAC?

You guys can see the mods I have, I'm wondering if I'd see lower EGT's that would justify spending the time to swap CAC's. I've read that with bigger injectors, the 6.0 CAC doesn't offer any additional cooling over the OE CAC. I've got AC's, which are technically bigger, but they're not a huge jump.
I've got a 6.0 CAC in my garage right now, so I'm wondering if it's worth it (worth it being defined as say a 100 degree drop while towing a 13k # fiver through the western US).

Thanks.

I did a 6.0 CAC. It think its helped me for sure. I saw lower EGT's by 100-150* .. We have similar setups so I think you'll see a benefit. You'll need longer intercooler boots that connect to the 6.0 CAC. the pass side is 3x8 and the drivers side is 3x3.25x8 or you can get them here

Depends on the price!! :)

I can't imagine seeing 150 degrees drop with just the 6.0. I figured the most you would see was about 50 degrees and maybe 100 at most... At least from what I have read.

My Spearco only drops the temps about 200...

you would see benefits, depends on how much you are willing to trade ($$) for those benefits.
