6.0 cooler install?

Howdy all, I have a 6.0 cooler that I purchased (cooler only no hoses) used from a friend. My question is: I have searched and everyone keeps talking about a kit. Do I need a kit or will everything just hook up nice and neat?

Which "cooler"?????

There's the 6.0L intercooler, or the trans cooler from the 6.0L's.

No problem.

You will need new boots. The stock ones are too short, and the inlet on the 6.0L intercooler is smaller than the one on the stock unit. The outlets are the same size. One boot will need to be a 3"x3"x8", and the other a 3"x3.25"x8". You'll also need one new 3" clamp.

Here is a link to a sponsor that has the boots you need and the 3" clamp: Ford 7.3L Powerstroke Diesel Spearco Intercoolers Intercooler Boots

Oh, and I forgot, is your truck a manual or auto?

If it's auto, do you still have the stock trans cooler? If you do, the bottom of the new intercooler will hit the lines at the top of the trans cooler. You'll either have to relocate the trans cooler to fit the new intercooler, or also install a trans cooler from a 6.0L truck to make everything fit.
