you dont need one yet. the stock intake is good for 500hp... id spend it on a ccv mod or something else your truck would like... maybe some gauges since you're tuned..

This is a positive crankcase ventilation system (PCV) and an emissions control device. On the driver side valve cover there is a crankcase breather that routes the vapor from the crankcase back into the air intake manifold via the turbo compressor. As oil droplets are picked up along with the combustion gasses that need to be evacuated you get some oil dropout through the compressor and CAC tube (hot side - passenger side). This oil will cause some degradation of the silicone boots connecting the turbo to the CAC tube and the CAC tube to the intercooler as well. This oil is what causes some to blow off CAC boots and lose turbo power or more significantly rupture the CAC boots requiring replacement of the boot rather than just reaffixing the boot. A CCV reroute with inline filtration catches the oil droplets in filter media but preserves the pressure balance for PCV operation. Rerouting the PCV to atmosphere as many commercial trucks do results in the odor of the crankcase surrounding the vehicle but more poignantly introduces the risk of evacuating the crankcase of oil if there becomes a pressure differential. Eliminating the oil from the PCV is easy, the catchcan just needs periodic draining (at each oil change). Maintaining the balance of pressure protects your engine and yes it keeps you in environmental compliance for emissions control if your state requires that at inspection time.

I agree with what has already been said. The stock intake is as good as it gets unless you are wanting to go big HP, by that I mean over 500HP. If you don't have gauges, get some. You are running tunes and you really need to be able to monitor what is going on under the hood, especially the EGTs. That is just my opinion.

I have a K&N CAI with a AEM Driflo filter. More HP/TQ and MPG.

I don't disagree that the stock intake is good to 500hp, but I do think that benefits and the cheaper filter cleaning is a lot better than replacing that donaldson for $75 each time.

CCV is practically free if you can figure out how to make it yourself.

Coolant filter and a ELC coolant will go a lot further than a CAI. Hell those are ALWAYS one of the very first things I do or suggest to do to a 6.0.
