aftermarket performance advice

OK guys here's what I have, 2008 6.4 crew cab 4x4 long box. and here's what I am getting ready to order. AFE Stage 2 SI Intake - Pro Guard 7 Filter, H&S mini maxx off road tuner, flo-pro ss633 5" stainless down-pipe back "no muffler, cat, dpf". I am doing this for longevity of the engine mostly and fuel mileage a close 2nd power is just an added bonus. This is a daily driver no towing, about 18 mi a day city driving mostly. The question I have is, will this be a good setup for my needs or is there better options? Input will be greatly appreciated before I shell out the $2,600. Thanks Yall,
Andy

Sounds good, though I prefer the 4" over the 5". The 5" is an added expense with no gain.

The reason I was going for the 5" is because I have read its a better "tone".

Well considering the exhaust comes off the outlet of the turbo and it goes through a downpipe of about 3.5-4", I believe there to be no actual tone or tone difference to discern. It's nothing like straight piping a gas motor.

I'm using the PDS filter and intake in my 370Z also uses the aFe PDS filter. Flows more air and easier to maintain than the oiled PG7. No complaints whatsoever. The sound the intake makes on decel is cool too... Bonus.
