intake an exhaust combo?

i currently have been looking at the magnaflow 5" turbo back exhaust and the volant cold air intake to try to get better mpgs. In the future I will put a tuner on but i still have factory warranties to ride out. the exhaust with 6" tip is 808.95 and intake 284.95 good deals? an if not any recommendations on other products.

You'll never recover the costs in mileage savings. I doubt you will see anything significant in the way of mileage gains. You don't need 5", 4" is plenty. Save yourself some money and do a system with a cat and muffler delete. A straight piped 6.0 sounds awesome. Do it for the sound because if your doing it for mileage you're in for a disappointment. Also the stock intake is good for 500hp so maybe you might want to retink that too, and put the money to something useful like an Edge Insight.

X2. Aluminized MBRP "off road kit" Turbo back for like 300 bucks. Dont believe the hype on the MPG gains.

No intake. Do the turbo back exhaust and it come with a free jet engine sound byte.

SCT tuned by Gearhead
Edge Insight
MBRP 4" TB Exhaust

You might want to get the CAI just to eliminate the hassle of changing the dumb@ss factory filter and the improved sound. And on a stock tune, you can get a seat of the pants difference from the older style afe intakes before the revised them for the later ECM flashes.

This is why I got a CAI.....that and I got a smokin deal on a combo fom NADP.
I think I paid $369 for S&B and AFE exhaust.

I just looked......now they want 960$ for the same kit, and its still a special....lol
