Trust me your going to need them. Once the stockers blow out once they have a tendency not to stick as they should.

Re: I/C Boots for 7.3 to 6.0 Swap

There is another company that has them, but reread the all silcone part I am sure someone can get you that link..I like the quality of the dieselsite boots and have never seen a neg post on them. But dig around the search button joe aka...csipsd had a few good posts on his dealing with it. Seems like about a 50-100 drop in egts iirc. Pretty easy swap but some trucks will have to tweak a couple of tranny hard lines..overall an easy swap. If you can get an ic for cheap worth it, if it is expensive the gains are not as good as other ic's.
