Best for the cash is to keep the stock intake (its good for 500+hp) sct tuner with custom tunes and a quality set of gauges or similar digital monitoing device to watch your temps do a search and you will find this a VERY COMMON QUESTION!

Ditto on the intake. I use a SCT X-CalIII, With a street,tow, and Looney tune. My truck is stock except for a MBRP Turbo back exhaust. And EGR delete. At 30,000 mile and running great.2007 F350 PSD 4x4...Good Luck

the only thing i would ever put on a 6.0L is a custom tuned SCT like the X3 with innovative tunes and a set of regular gauges...

SCT Tuner with custom tunes from Eric at Innovative Diesel. As far as gauges go, I would recommend the Edge Insight.
