Well maybe if you had studs you could have run a stud tune but thats really the only thing that would make a power difference, the stock intake sucks plenty of air for what you have.

The stock filter and intake setup will outperform just about everything else on the market and will cost you less money in maintenance in the long run.

+1 about studs, gaskets, and a stud tune making more power than what you have now.

Matt at spartan dyno tested a lot of tunes on a 6.0 high hp and all and said there was zip, zero, zilch on the dyno with the stock turbo. It is said that untill you are putting 500-550rwhp you don't need one. That would equate to roughly 155cc injectors and a 64mm turbo (500ish rwhp) and 190cc injectors and say a vgtss (550ish rwhp)

I believe it. And at that point, most of the aftermarket filters probably don't have the dirt loading capacity to actually flow more air over stock for more than a few thousand miles before their restriction reaches unacceptable levels.
