just go with the cheapest 4" tb exhaust... you have a 6.0L means your going to get 3.5" DP from pretty much all the major manufacturers ....

noticed you didnt say you have gauges... if you dont have them you need the for sure

well most people will tell you to ditch the K & N filter on anything with a turbo; For exhaust there isn't really any difference in performance from one to another, some will tell you MBRP or something high end, but I've been really happy with my $300 5" farm boys diesel exhaust.

Definately get a set of gauges if you are running a tuner though.
