Upgrades, Exhaust, Air Intake, Programmer, and Gauges

I have an 06' F-250 and i wanting to put on some upgrades. it is stock except for 35x12.50

Exhaust - I am wanting to put a 4" turbo-back exhaust on. What Brand?

Air Intake - What kind of air intake?

Programmer - I know the SCT with the custom tunes. I like the look of the Livewire but what all does it do? I would like a programmer that would adjust for larger tires and be able to adjust easy.

Gauges - What kind?

go with a farmboydiesel exhaust 4 inch or diamond eye you can pick a turbo back for around 300 or so. intake wise i wouldnt change your intake the 6.0 intake is a good flowing safe intake. but if you insist on doing an intake go with airraid dont go k&n. and chips i personaly like SCT they are located real close to me but TW chip is prob your best bet chip wise he does great custom tuning. hit up Xtremedieselperformance.com good guy over there and great prices.

Exhaust- There are several manufacturers to choose from depending on how much you want to spend. There are budget kits starting under $300. If you wnt to go this route, Diamond Eye is the best choice in my opinion. If you want a little higher end system, take a look at MBRP.

Intake- I suggest looking at AFE or S&B. AFE has several different styles to choose from, the stage two XP being the best. S&B has one offering, but is an excellent kit at under $270 shipped.

Programmer- SCT is an excellent choice that will do everything you need it to. The Livewire offers gauges as well all in one unit. If you want adjustability on the fly, you will need to look at Bullydog PMT or Edge J/A.

Gauges- Are you looking for traditional gauges on the A-pillar or digital? The Edge Insight was released recently and has been our top seller due to its ease of use and installation, not to mention all the parameters it can monitor.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at anytime. Also, if you plan on ordering these parts together, we can put you together a package deal to save you some money.

i say keep the stock intake since it will flow more than enough air for what you want to do...

as far as exhaust go with a budget kit....

i would go analog gauges instead of doing the livewire... im not a big fan of those all in one gauges/tuners... if one breaks you lose both...

go with autometer or Isspro gauges...

tuner go with a custom tuned X3
