now i know this is typically a whatever you want get it kind of thing, i'm just wondering what is the best intake for filtering purposes, ease of use, overall quality, same goes for exhaust what kit is easy to install yet still looks good, best bang for the buck. i know there are alot of options for both intake and exhaust, any input would be great

For the intake, look at the S&B or AFE II XP with PG7. Both will provide excellent flow and filtration. For the exhaust, I suggest MBRP. They are available is aluminized or stainless depending on your budget. You can choose to either run the cat or get the delete pipe if you want to get rid of it. Let me know if I can help with anything.

Most will say that your stock Donaldson intake system will flow more than enough are for up to 450hp+

my suggestion is save your money from the intake and get a nice stainless exhaust kit with a nice tip
:nod::thumb:I agree..... Use that saved money and maybe even step up to duals??? Thats if you like that look?:dunno:

well for what your doing i'd say go w/ the cat-back and an Airaid intake. the Airaid is the most popular for the 6.0 b/c it's got a 7 layer filter standard and it fits great, also it's very easy to take out and clean.

here are some reviews off our site on the Airaid

Took about an hour to install, maybe less. Straight forward instructions and pics really help. Factory airbox is a little stubborn to get out, but the Airaid goes in pretty easy. You can really hear all the air being sucked-in when you punch it! The added power is heard and felt!

Easy Installation! (DieselGuy)
The Airaid Intake was an easy install and completely removed that restrictive air box. The power difference was instant!
