Exclamation PLEASE!! help me decide

i just recently traded two of my pride n joys for am 05 f350 harley edition and by no means do i have any complaints! my frustration since entering the relm of the POWERSTROKE is not being able to decide on which intake, chip, and exhaust to go with and money plays apart in this also. heres my delimma and thoughts. im not planning on turning this power plant into a stump puller cause it is my daily driver so MPG's is a BIG +, but i wouldnt mind a lil more power cause i do pull a boat once or twice a week. as for the intake i see ALOT of people are running(and apparently liking) the AFE stage II. any nah sayers? or reccomendations? also i dont see alot of people high fiving the new EDGE cts, which i am liking the backup camera option!!! and the exhaust...im gonna pull the hair i dont have out! i LOVE the rumble and purrrrr of the 6.0 with straight stacks or just dualed straights, but not too sure on what exactly NC allows. the inspection stations cant give me a straight answer. the best ive got is if it came on the truck it needs to be there, but i havent heard anything that sounds to my likings other than straights!! what gives!! almost miss my v8 gas hog. also, whats up with the annoying jet engine whistle from the trucks that have straights? is that a POWERSTROKE signature? anyway, please help me in my decisions, cause im back n forth between the banks bundle or afe stage II, edge cts, and mbrp duals. thanks guys cant wait to get some good daily driving performance so i can jack the beast up 8 and put some 38" meats under her!!

Air intake= Factory works until 500h.p. or so I've heard.
Programmer= SCT with custom tunes. Cant go wrong. I had edge and got SCT and couldnt believe the difference of custom tunes. Be sure to get a set of gauges as well.
Exhaust= MBRP is good. Its what I run with no complaints. I have mine with no cat or muffler and it sounds like a jet and I love it.

People will probably back me up on this...

yeah im sure the factory would work but i know from previous toys that aftermarket really makes everything come together and alive. im not too sure if i wanna go extreme with custom tunes cause im not goin all out with this truck i just want reliable power & MPG for everyday driving and the occasional boat hauling. im thinking that im probly gonna go with the MBRP cause it seems to be the hottest thing goin for the diesel but i cant help but like the look of the banks exhaust. youtube videos dont help much either. lol i figure if i can and do go straight ill just buy the back end of the banks duals cause of the look. but im still waiting to hear what other feedback i get. thanks this is a great start. keep it coming guy!!

exhaust doesnt really matter that much tho. any 4 inch will work, mbrp is probably the best, and their stainless is pretty durable.

Don't waste your money on an intake. Been there, done that with no difference except a lighter wallet. SCT hands down, Magna Flow or MBRP in SS whichever you get the best deal on. Both are high quality and easy to install. I prefer the sound of 4inch. Get an egr delete and dump the egr cooler.
