newbie from PA

My name is Jesse. I am from Shartlesville and I just bought my first real truck. It's an '02 350 SCLB Lariat 6 spd with 160k miles. I wish I wouldn't have waited 40 yrs to drive my first diesel. It has what appears to be a K&N cai, a TS six position chip that I had HDP install today and boost and EGT gauges. As far as I know everything else is stock. I don't plan on any more mods but we all know how that goes. My questions for now are: Can I put another type of filter on the K&N intake or will I have to replace the entire intake? Will a hi flow muffler be ok with the stock exhaust or should I just put on a full 4" turbo back exhaust. My main use for this truck is hauling my RZR on weekends and towing a 9000 lb TT with the RZR in the bed maybe 3-4 times a year, and putting a smile on my face whenever I drive it. Thanks for everyones help, I have learned alot lurking on this site for the last few weeks.
