S and b if u get a intake. Intercoolers banks makes a nice set up, most ppl say you need a pretty big turbo before you need a new intercooler. With a new intake you will flow better but lose how well it filters. I wouldn't let it stop me if I wanted a new intake just saying its not a must on the 6.0 a lot of ppl have dyno runs pushing 500 hp on the stock intake.

for intake, I would say get S&B or AFE. I really don't think an intercooler is worth it without some pretty serious mods--turbo and injectors

^2 I would have to agree. I run an afe magnum force stage two dry filter and my intake temps are ambient and iat temp in the manifold is usually around 20 degrees above ambient. The oem cac is efficient. Most guys replace them cause of the plastic end caps are known not to hold up under high heat and boost levels

unless your towing, WOT or a large turbo to counter huge amounts of fuel your not going to see anything from a intercooler just flowing with traffic down the road. Now I know my Banks did help with my PMax and stock injectors when WOT but just going down the road is within 25*F of stock. Sorta the samething with the stock air filter if your going down the road you can beat the stock box. Now when I had the stock box on the PMax it didn't take as long to get enough dirt to start pulling the filter minder. But the same thing with my after market I just clean it every oil change where the stock box I was putting a new filter in about every 10k ( I don't go over 25% clogged). With the stock turbo the stock filter took longer to get that amount of dirt so the filters lasted longer.
