First Mods

After about 24 hours of owning my first diesel , I'm pondering my first mods. After a good bit of reading here, I've decided not to do the DPF delete and/or tuning until I'm closer to the end of my powertrain warranty. (Call me a wuss, but it's just not worth the risk to me.) However, I'm considering upgrading the intake, since there aren't many problems they can blame on better air flow. I'm mainly looking for mpg increase, but power is also nice. Would an intake upgrade help the milage? If so, what are some of the better ones available?

Also, are there some other mods that might help with the fuel efficiency that aren't a big risk to the warranty?

Thanks for the help guys. I'm really getting a lot from this forum.

Will an S&B without tuning or exhaust mods make an MPG difference?

That's what I figured, from what I'd read so far. Thanks for the quick answers, guys!

Are there any other mods (that aren't a big danger to the warranty) that might help fuel efficiency?

Your best bet is to just leave it stock if your worried about warentee. Without removing the DPF/DOC your not going to see much at all in fuel mileage.
