Depends on how much you pay for it.

I'm a cynic, so I don't think that anyone can tell a difference on something that claims such a small hp % gain.

but.... they (Banks makes one too) look nice, and they are much bigger than stock.

What kind of mods have you done to your trucK?

Has anyone else bought the intercooler tubes and noticed a difference such as louder turbo or lower egt's?

No it wont make your truck run cooler, and banks is like 135 bucks. I dont see why anyone would want the AFE for 100 more bucks. I only got the banks pipe because my turbo housing would not fit the stocker.

Gee where did you find that price? I cant even find that on banks website for my truck. Maybe I am wrong but for the same price on both I would rather have the black tube then the grey banks one. I can get the AFE for $235 but if there is a better deal let me know. thanks

Banks is a way better deal. I got mine for that price over a year ago so it might have gone up. see if alligator performance has any.
