I would just do the zoodad mod and leave it stock......better filter and all the air you will need for what you are running.

Do you have a Coolant Filter System yet? Take the $ you were going to spend on the intake and get a Coolant Filter system.

If you feel you want to do something with the intake, just get an CFM+ intake elbow, and I think you can get a AFE drop in filter for your stock system (not sure).

I noticed my engine running smoother with the elbow when I installed it. I also used the pre-drilled port to hook my aftermarket boost gauge up to.

save the money and leave the stock intake.. it will flow more than enough air... i would spend that money on a set of gauges...

EGR block and coolant re-route, or egr delete.
Coolant Filter. Buy a kit or buy the parts individualy for cheaper.
Oil, Coolant, EGT gauges. Trans gauge is good to add if you can. The Edge Insight is a good buy, it gets all of that and more.
Oil Bypass kit. You can buy one for over $300. Or buy the parts individually for under $150. I did this, I found the oil filter mount for $20 and got the filter cap from nuc for ~$60.
