Intake most definately. And in my opinion and a few others, S&B is the way to go. Welcome to the org!!!

Mine had a DIY, it looked good but performed like terd. This one is a TON better, I can see it, feel it, and HEAR it. Totally worth the money I think.

Haven't you guys all said head studs are needed when you start modding a lot? Just checking for our new member.

Depending on the power he's goin for. Keeping that tranny safe is a good idea. Studs are a good idea, but not an absolute MUST until 400hp or so.

They are right, if you are gonna leave that intake, or do the S&B or any other one, you need gauges. I'd get those before anything.

DOn't IN ANYWAY MEAN TO HIJACK, But I understand the 6.0 air box flows pretty darn good, If any of you saw a good/great improvment with an after market filter and box I would like to know. But I do agree with the gauge idea, There is nothing like getting a little more intimate with your baby, Plus it will help you in the future with additional mods.
And welcome to the org, You will find any question you have will not go unanswered.

I am keeping my stock air box and filter for now. Supposedly there is no need for an aftermarket system for your truck unless you go over 500 rwhp. The stock filter is also capable of holding a huge amount of dirt/dust and it stops 99.95% of it. I spent my money on an exhaust, gauges, and an xcal3.
