I am a boat and RV dealer so I tow allot in turn that's why I went to diesel from my gasser. Friends of mine own diesel and have A LOT of advise to give. And of course I listen, But I would also like to get The guy's on this site's opinion on my decision for upgrading my truck in FEB 2008. I will list in order of events so if someone disagrees on time line please let me know. I have 95000 on my truck and newly married so I need it to last.
1) ZOODAD ( Doing Tomorrow )
2) HEAD STUDS
3) 4" TURBO BACK ( Farm Boy I will be calling you ) Thanks to you guys
4) INTAKE ( DON'T KNOW WITCH ONE YET )
5) EDGE ATTITUDE WITH JUICE
Any input would be greatly appreciated

I second the SCT over the edge. Your transmission will thank you. If you want to save some money, you don't really need the intake. The factory filter flows more than enough for what you want to do.

I agree with the other's assessments. Don't need aftermarket intake, but definitely choose the SCT over the Edge...

I agree, the only reason I have one is my buddy sold it to me for $100 w/ 2 filters, couldn't pass it up

Good Ideal

Thanks guy's for the input, It sounds like all Ya'll believe in the SCT, I think that will work great for me. And I am glad to hear that I can run my stock intake, But i do have one more question. Should I replace the stock air filter with an aftermarket one?

Thanks again
Bryan

ur factory filter will do just fine for you till you get to about 450HP at the rear wheels....which isnt even really safe to tow with anyways...
