6.0 pipes wont work without some major mods. Check out this page. GTS makes a kit to install a 7.3 intercooler in an obs. Maybe with some mods the 6.0 will work. http://www.gts-motorsports.com/

the 6.0 pipes wouldn't work. you may be able to use superdiuty 7.3 pipes with different boots to adapt to the different size cooler.

I can get a 7.3 spider and a 6.0 intercooler. will the pipes need to be custom?

Yes the piping will need to be custom made or you can get it from GTS like said above.

The 7.3 spyder will work if it is one from an Early 99.

I've been told by a bunch of guys that GTS quit making them. Best to contact him for sure.
I've been buried in calls with guys looking for these pipes, too...

One side is 3 1/4" and the other is 3" so you will need one 3 1/4" to 3" IC boot and one 3" IC boot.

I can't remember for sure but I want to say that the drivers side is the 3 1/4
