100% behind the DIY intake, done that to all my trucks, and my buddy's. Exhaust, I'd just straight pipe it... and for a little more turbo whistle, remove the foil insulation on the CAC tubes... (the tubing from the turbo to the intercooler and back to the intake spyder). Personally, I didn't want to remove the foil on my yellow truck, but a power steering hose leak soaked it with power steering fluid, and I took it off, as it was a mess. Some increase in turbo noise now...

Ya he means the 6637 kit from riffraff. 4" inch exhaust will help lower your egts quite a bit.
do you plan on getting a chip or gauges in the future? then i would do the exhaust and 6637 intake
All these things can easily be done in your driveway with common tools.

Ya if you put the exhaust in front of your wheel get ready to have a black rim lol
the stock intake does not flow very well.. But the 6637 kit will make it breathe much better, plus the 6637 filters better than anything.
All 4 inch exhausts sound about the same. and yes it sounds good. I dont have a muffler but you can buy a kit that comes with a free flowing muffler if you dont want a straight pipe

4" inch exhaust is anywhere from 250-300.
6637 intake is 77$ plus s+h from riffraff diesel...and it comes with pre-filter cover.
so its up to you and your wallet.

Another vote for the DIY 6637 here.

As far as exhaust I went with diamond eye from PTP. I spray paired it black with high temp heat stove paint. It looks good and is holding up great. Great bang for the buck. Their kits usually come with a 4" down pipe too
