well first of all you dont have to change your intake.. your stocker will flow more than enough air to support 400HP

if you really want to change it S&B is one of the best bang for your bucks out their: S&B 6.0L Intake

it will change the sound a lil bit... basically you will be able to hear it sucking in the air...

I know an intake isn't necessary, but I am a big fan of them. Yes you can hear the airflow being sucked in, it makes the turbo whistle just a bit louder in the cab. Mine breathes so hard it will draw the filter minder in just by the force of air being sucked in...

only an exhaust would change the exhaust sound... you basically can hear your turbo spool up a lil more than with the stock setup.....

what all do you have done to your truck?

its a 03 lariat cc 6.0 I guess the worst year ever it has 134,000 mi, currently i just have a 4in turbo back exhaust from fbd, and was thinkin about orderin a intake and the edge insight from STEALTH AUTO. and maybe a chip, but ive read about all the egr and head problems, the egr and studs seem like it would be expensive to do ?

the studs you can get for like 500 bucks but its the labor that kills you... i think its in the 1500+ for labor on headstuds... you can do a EGR delete for fairly cheap.. but you need to know how to weld...

if your gonna go with an intake i highly suggest the S&B intake.. best bang for your bucks on intakes....

as far as gauges go i would just get a set of regular pillar gauges... the insight is nice but i have always personally liked analog gauges better... i have had both and both at the same time and it was harder for me to read the digital readouts while i was driving... i could make sense of the analog gauges faster...

plus the insight reads off a inaccurate trans temp sensor from the factory.. you want a real gauge reading...

I'm a big fan of analog gauges too. My quad commander is up for sale because I did not like it much. Switched to a set of real gauges and couldn't be happier.

Try cutting the snorkle off, it will change the exhaust tone.

right but at 70 bucks a pop for a filter, 4 filters and you have a new intake with a reusable filter!

studs,egr delete(sinister),dieselsite coolant filter, nuc oil bypass, dj's fuel + regulated fuel return, sct by eric, 4in silverline no cat, isspro gauges, cat elc coolant, hids, lots of other odds and ends......
