Skip the air intake.... and go with the SCT X3
The factory air intake is good for 500hp. (heard that here)

i'd gear your axles before tuning. only reason those 40's are putting alot of extra strain on your transmission. will also help with performance and get you some better mpg.

i agree with the re gearing..... i would add ome 4.30's to it if not 4.56.... i was running 4.30's on 40's and it was a good combo.. got back my bottom end torque but still had great fuel economy on the highway...

as for a tuner i only recommend a X3 with custom tunes like this: SCT X3 Custom Innovative Diesel Tunning

Majority of guys on this site are running SCT. My truck had a quadzilla when I bought it, but I have since joined the SCT crowd. You won't regret it. I have only dealt with Matt at gearheadautomotive for my tunes and have had great success.
