Need some Help Guys

Hi everyone im new to the site and wanted to say hey. Plus I have some questions .I know a decent amount about moding a 7.3 but I thought id ask yalll for some advice.A friend came to me today and asked me to build up his 2006 6.0 . So I told him he should probably start off with a 4in turbo back exhaust and cat delete . Also with a new intake my guess would be oil less .So My question for you guys is which air intake system is best and if a 4'' turbo back is the way to go . Any advice would be appreaited because im novice at these 6.0's thanks

actually his stock intake will flow more than enough air.. he doesnt have to replace his intake...

if he just wanted to buy one i would go with the S&B.. its an oiled filter but studies have shown that an oiled fitler will filter better than a dry unit if it is properly maintained

hope this helps...

as far as other mods he should def get gauges, and for a tuner nothing can beat a custom tuned SCT with innovative tunes... if you have any questions please feel free to ask

Most people will say the stock air box is fine but I noticed a big difference when i put my afe stage 2 in. Also the sct x3 with custom tunes is the programmer the 6.0 needs

Yes i have more questions. See my Dad alslo has a 6.0 which I put a K&N on it a few years back and it got 1 to 2 miles better fuel mileage but everyone told me because the filter was oiled it would mess the truck up. I didnt belive them so i kept it on. Is it true a K&N will mess up a 6.0. Oh and I plan on telling my freind to get guages as well.

their is a diff that K&N will mess up trucks and oiled...

the K&N filters are known to dust turbo's but its not because their oiled...

Oiled filters are great as long as you dont over oil them or under oil them... S&B has a very accurate application guide so when you have to clean and re oil your filter...

here are a couple of links to help you out

Intake: S&B 6.0L Intake
Gauges: Auto Meter Gauge Kits
SCT: SCT X3 Custom Innovative Diesel Tunning
or a ST/Gauge kit: SCT X3 Custom Innovative Diesel Tunning/ Gauge Combo Kit

you already said he got exhaust but here is a link for your dads: Stealth 4" Budget Kit

that right their is the best thing you can do to a 6.0L

hope this helps...

of course i can do a package deal if your looking for something like that

let me know

i dont really see a problem buying a C/A intake if you are on the streets most or all the time. i stick with the stock one but i drive gravel all the time. as for the exhaust, it sounds like you know what you are talking about. the good basics are intake(if you choose), exhaust, gauges, and an sct with custom tunes. pretty cheap stuff for alot of return. if you want you could go with headstuds but then its more money but also you are paying for a safety margin. hey, its not your money!!
anyway, welcome to the org by the way! good info on here for your 7.3 as well.

Thanks everyone for their input I greatly appreicate it . oh by the way on my Dads 6.0 He Destroyed the Turbo but got it under warrenty 3000. So thats why i needed the truth on those K&N's. But besides that I am looking at buying a package deal for a intake and exhaust if anyone has any deals . so do alot of people run those S&B intakes or what is the most popular between you all ?

i sell more S&B intakes than anything else... the AFE are great too but at over 100 bucks more your better off going with the S&B...

let me know which exhaust kit your looking to get and i can get you a package deal....

The stock intake will flow more than enough air with a stock turbo and support up to about 500 RWHP with an A/M turbo, not to mention it will hold about 3 1/2 lbs of dirt before it needs changed. Spend your money on a gauge package and SCT from Raul@Stealth. Much better investment til the mod bug bites harder.
