The stock airbox on the 6.0L is sufficient for most applications. There is no real need to buy aftermarket intake. I agree with a 4 inch turbo-back exhaust, SCT with custom tuning. I also have lost my cat and muffler. I love the straight-piped sound. That is just me though! I would also suggest a set of gauges, unless you are looking at the SCT Livewire, which has the gauges built in. Heads studs are always a good idea, especially if you are going to be running your truck hard and putting it up wet! LOL It just depends on how far you want to go with your truck and what you are wanting to spend now or spend later. Good luck and let me know you need anymore information. I hope this helps.

A lot of people say stock is better, and I am one of the guys who say B.S. to that...I felt an increase with my AirAid and the dyno number they put up are quite accurate...No stock paper filter and sound restrictive box will every top thousand of dollars and man hours of R&D for these intake companies...now there are some better than others of course..like K&N is garbage, and not worth the paper the instructions are printed on... but its all up to you and your budget...

I'd like to see before and after numbers on a fairly stock truck with the stock airbox and paper element(which flows pretty darn well and traps crap loads of dirt) and any of the aftermarket filters. Unless they are posting dyno results I'd take manufacturers claims with a grain or two of salt. Besides, I can't see how these guys are charging up to $400+ for a cone $50 cone filter and a sheet metal box. There are better bang for the buck mods to do first.

That being said, If I was buying an aftermarket filter it would be either the Airaid or S&B and at some point one will make its way onto my truck.

First I'd do gauges (no performance but you want to watch what's going on if you start modding) exhaust (4" Turbo back and dump the kittie) and a good tune from someone like DJ or Eric at Innovative Diesel or a handful of other tuners that support the forums.
