New to Diesel trucks

Well I am new to the whole diesel truck thing. I just bought a 2011 f250 with the 6.7 engine in it! I plan on running a 4" lift on it with 35's but I know nothing about the engine work! I am looking for help advice on doing an exhaust system that sounds good and a cold air intake. I know nothing about either of these and I am also not a rich dude. I want to have a nice sounding and running truck but don't want to dump loads of money into it also. "Ballin on a Budget" so to speak. I trasded in my 2011 F150 lifted for this truck and Having this truck for almost 2 weeks with no lift and tires is killing me. ANy help you all can give me is much appreciated!

You have to get a Tuner in order to straight pipe it and have a nice sounding exhaust.

Air filter - S&B

Tuner - H&S

Exhaust - proflow or MSDS

EGR delete -H&S with pyro

Looking about $2000 plus install.

I know how you feel about not having a lift. I traded a 2010 F150 with a pro comp stage 2 6" lift that road like a dream. Big Laing has it pretty spot on for the mods you want. From what I understand is you can get an H&S street tuner and have it custom tuned to do a DPF delete. If you cant get the street tuner custom tuned you need either a Spartan tuner or an H&S race tuner to remove the DPF from you truck. Also this voids warranty just as a heads up. As for the install, save yourself some money and do it yourself. All the work is straight forward and I did it all myself and I am no mechanic.
