What is the best Air induction or aftermarket filter set up For the 6.0?

This will be the 1st mod I've have done to my 2006 6.0 PSD. Is there one that stands out as the best? Will I be able to tell a difference on a stock rig without any other mods? I used K&N cold air kits on my 03 Mach 1 & 02 Ranger but I'm new to the diesel world. Any info will be helpful. Thanks

You dont really need an intake and if I could do it again I would have spent that money toward other mods. But if you are set on getting one, AFE and S&B seem to be the most popular.

Save your money, and spend it on something else. The stock setup supports about 500hp

w/ custom tunes from Eric, 4" TB exhaust

i agree you dont really need one... but if you absolutely had to get one i would either do a full kit like a S&B or AFE or just their drop in filters

I would get a drop in AFE filter. It goes inside your stock filter and is very easy to clean. They are pretty cheap too!

Thanks for the info. Soooo if I leave the induction alone what would your next mod be? Maybe a program? I've had good success with a Superchip programmer on my mustang but not sure if the're good on a PSD. I'm not looking for all out power. I'm just looking to gain some power when I need it. I don't want to overwork it or rag it out. I need this truck to last. I like the programmers because I still have the extended warranty & like being able to put it back to stock before any dealer work is done.

I would get an exhaust and/or gauges next.

How involved or hard is it to install the gauges? I hate wiring. Do they just plug into the original sending units or instrument pod? What exhaust would you recommend? I don't want it to be loud only make more power. I need to keep it on a wife friendly budget as well.

The gauges aren't too hard to do if your good with tools. Some gauges come with wiring harnesses and some you have to wire yourself. Either way you will have to run some wires. For the exhaust I would get a 4'' turbo back. Raul has some different exhausts and Im sure he can help you.
