Need advice on performents parts

Alright, first off i have a 2004 F350 6.0. I want to put a programmer, cold air intake and a bigger filter housing in the truck. Ive read a lot about edge, sct and banks tuners and ram airs but i am not sure on which is the best to have. I also am looking into a bigger exhaust, probably 5 inches. Any suggestions on what to get and run from?

Pretty much sums it up.

SCT is going to be one of the best option for tuning. Take your pick of the preferred exhaust set up, but installing one is recommended. Coolant filter makes for a good preventative item as you will find out the more you poke around on here. S&B and AFE make the best kits for your intake. They are tested to be the best balance of air flow and filtering. The S&B will be a little cheaper.

If you want BIG horse power, ARP studs are going to be your friend.

Oh my goodness! You guys need to stop for a second. Just pull your heads out of your collective butts and make sure the OP has a healthy truck before we go spending all his money on parts. OP, GET A MONITOR FIRST! I like the Edge Insight CS or CTS or the scangauge II. Check you ECT/EOT delta and FICM voltage. Then get fuel pressure and EGT gauges so you know what is going on under the hood. There is sticky in this section about monitoring the 6.0. Read up on that before you do anything. This will be important when you do add exhaust and a tuner.
