Intercooler piping material and size??

What is the size and material of the intercooler piping on the early '99 7.3L's?

3" and if you're making your own, food-grade stainless always looks sexy

On my 99.5 they are aluminized steel - because magnets don't stick to aluminum - but they sick on mine.

Stainless would look very nice polished up.

Yep, I've seen a couple trucks with it and it looks awesome. Polish it up and have it ceramic coated and it's even better.

Very interesting stuff. I will have to throw a magnet on the stock ones when I get home to make sure they are not pot metal.
