id say just intake and chip.

wont notice much from the intercooler and intake manifold.

if you plan on getting some bigger injectors get the 38r, if not look at getting a billet compressor wheel from dieselsite, bd, or riffraff.

and AFE probably makes the best intake for these trucks, but the DIY 6637 is the cheapest and most affective.

Spectrum? Isnt that the AutoZone brand? If so, ditch it.

Other than that, all I have to say is an aftermarket intake manifold wont do anything but lighten your wallet.

ya its like $125 new, it was on the truck when i bought it, but every time i clean it i do notice a little dust sitting in the pipe to the turbo,

im think im leaning towards a S&B filter, i really like the way it works and looks

S&B Filters Cold Air Intake Kit (Cleanable Filter) 75-5028

I would have to see your filter to see if it needs changed...

Other then that, throw a 38R on there and a Power Hungry Performance Hydra chip with Gearheads tunes...

Just say no to DP Tuner.
