Don't go k&n. look at the 6637 DIY. Waaaay cheaper and flows better. As far as cost, couldn't tell you as there are a lot of options. Do your research, make a list, gather prices. That's the best way.

Also, intake, exhaust, and gauges should be priority number 1.

6637 flows cleaner. the kn filter will allow to much thru which will in turn dust the motor and trans. Also when you say programmer what do you mean? I wouldnt run anything other than custom tunes unless you can rebuild your own trans for very cheap. Stock turbo is really maxed out with the stock injectors, the wicked wheel won't change the fact that the turbine side is to small. You are lookong at a couple thousand for everything.

As stated, look at other options besides the K&N. With good tuning on that setup, yes you are still in the safe zone. Gauges are vital before adding tunes or injectors, so factor that in as well.

We can get you setup with the gauges, tunes, and injectors if you are interested. Shoot me an e-mail or PM for pricing.

I'm still very new myself to having a diesel but after reading all the different advice I have gotten from this site my truck runs amazingly. 6637 intake, 5inch MRBP, and DP Tuner's Infinity gauge and tuner combo my truck runs like a bat out of hell. For the intake and exhaust system I was at about $400, the tuner was about $1100 but it was more then worth it.
