Send a message via AIM to thesmokinstroke02
first off intake and straight pipe then maybe go to a chip or programmer.

I would start with the exhaust. Drive it a few days, then look at gauges/programmer (SCT IMHO). The intake is controversial to say the least. I run an Airaid and did not notice that much, but you can hear the turbo more.

A 4" turbo back MBRP exhaust is what I had on my 6.0, shortly after, I cut the performance muffler out I also had an AFE intake with the Pro Guard 7 filter-very good IMO. I would then get some gauges( pyro, boost, trans temp) and an SCT tuner Then when you get a lil bigger ich for performance, there's always the intake elbow (CFM, Banks, AFE, BD etc.), EGR block off kit from Elite Diesel Engineering, Snow Performance water/meth injection, and last but certainly not least.......THE ALL IMPORTANT HEAD STUDS Hahahaha......thats everything I had done to my 6.0 before she was totaled.

08 CCSB 250 = Spartan, Insanity heads, Stg 1 cam, Elite HPFP, ported rails and 110 inj, H-11 studs, Tow Power compounds, AD 165, wastegate, BOV, CFM adaptor, ccv delete, NXD 6000, SCV

09 LMM Chevy Duramax - CCSB 4x4, SCV w/1058, AD II, EFI Live, EGR BO plate, MBRP 4", Empire tie rods & centerlink-517hp
Both built by me

Cummins is just STROKEN'S mess!!

Exhaust first (4" turboback, any of the namebrand companies make a great product)

The intake (on a 6.0L) is not really a nessasary upgrade until you get BIG power. The stocker flows plenty of air and filters better than an aftermarket filter. (It is still a popular upgrade though, I'd go AFE if (when) I upgrade mine)

Gauges next (EGT, boost, trans. temp)

Then you're set for a tuner, (I'm going to be going SCT w/ custom tunes.)

Hope this helps ya out a little,.........and
