Some questions from a newbie

I have a 2007 F350, crewcab, long bed, lariat, so far only the zoodad mod.
I pull a 6000lb. boat with it, 35 miles round trip 3 times a week.

I want to do some upgrades and have read many articles on this site, but now I'm getting confused. Plain and simple, what should I do first...exhaust, intake, then a programmer??
Or can I just install a programmer and then do the rest of the mods when I have a couple grand to blow?

Please give me some input on what to do, brands to buy, and any other tips.

Thanks, Nick

Exhaust 1st, gauges then tuner. Don't worry about the intake. The factory intake will flow more than enough air unless you plan for 500+ h.p. Hope that helps.

4" should be sufficient, unless your going to mod the heck out of it. The5" will give a little deeper tone and free up the weight of your wallet more.

I've got 4" TB SS exhaust from Silverline and love it. You can get the kit with a muffler delete pipe. I left the muffler on mine but I still have a lot of whistle.
