Re: power from 6.0

Intake, Exhaust, and a SCT... Well you are on the right track so far! Get some custom tunes on the SCT for an awesome amount of power!! After that I suggest supporting mods like a fuel system upgrade, gauges, egr delete, and if funds allow, studs.

Re: power from 6.0

if you want power, take care of some of the other basics first, EGR delete, and head studs. that should give you a fairly reliable platform to work off of

GO WITH HEADSTUDS AND EGR DELETE!!! the chip and exhaust are under 1000 total so wait on that till later, you don't need an intake until you get into bigger turbos and injectors anyways so don't even think about it for now.

Re: power from 6.0

Stick with a 4" exhaust and stock intake until you have over 550 rwhp and headstuds.

Turbo, injectors with all the supporting mods... I suggest get a intake just because dealing with the stock one is a b1tch!
