Why not

I've looked and looked. Why doesn't anyone offer a 6.0 style intercooler with upgraded pipes, boots, and clamps? I want to up grade my set up, but don't want to keep my stock pipes.

Re: Why not

banks is the only one i have seen with pipes..
tho A spearco will out perform it with stock pipes as will di'S offering.
maybe call banks and see how much just the pipes can be had for

for the record the most drop a 6.0 cooler will do is 150 though most see 25-50 or nothing depending on conditions.
more or less if you can get A 6.0 ic for free or 100$ i would say it is worth the scratches on your arms you will get from the swap.

just my two cents

Re: Why not

Isn't a upgraded 6.0 better than a upgraded 7.3?

No...

However your postings are confusing as all hell...

A stock 6.0 IC is no upgrade on a 7.3...

A larger then stock, like Spearco or DI, is just that, an aftermarket IC... There will be no differance between one made for a 6.0 or a 7.3...

I was under the impression it was.
Under that impression I would also think a after market ic for a 6.0 would be better than a aftermarket 7.3.
Isn't the point of an after part to upgrade on a factory part?

Re: Why not

The stock 6.0 IC has plastic end tanks, it is only marginally larger then the 7.3...

Most see no differance (as I did) or very little.

Once you go to an aftermarket IC, there is only so much room in the truck to make one, they are all pretty much the same size.

The best and largest IC on the market for our trucks is the hypermax unit, close second would be the Spearco, then the DI DIIC and out from there.
