I'd suggest leaving the stock intake in (do the zoodad mod though), replace the exhaust with a 4" turbo back set up and get some sort of monitering system or gauges.

I wouldn't expect to much (if any) of an increase in HP or fuel milage, but it will set you up for the next step......... tuning , this is where you'll see an increase

Oh yeah, and a fresh oil change and new filters (oil and fuel) is always a good thing

Like 07 outlaw said the stock air intake is good to 500HP spend your money on other things like coolent filter,fuel pressure gauge, gauges i like the Edge Insight and the list goes on

oil change between 3000 and 4000, filters done per ford recommendations,

fuel pressure gauge and other gauges are for more than show, i am sure, is there one book or place that explains most of this or do i just get answers as i go.
coolant filter i definitely am doing, on occasion i pull some pretty heavy trailers

Just ask your questions and the folks here will give you a hand. You want to be able to monitor EOT and ECT as well. That'll tell you if your oil cooler is clogging before your truck starts puking on you and blowing egr coolers and head gaskets. The Edge Insight monitors are a real good way to do this. They can display anything the computer monitors.
