So, what next for a tow/daily driver?

I've got tunes from DI, an AFE, and a 4" turbo-back magnaflow. I'm thinking big oil and then a IC?

The truck is my daily and tows my toys. Suggestions?

Dave, I would be looking at big oil and a turbo. A turbo will probably help with egt's quite a bit and make it fun to drive. (ball bearing version)

Big oil will make a huge difference in throttle response, driveability and towing. It's awesome.

You could do a 6.0 intercooler (33% larger) unless you're going for some serious fuel.

i second what gregrob says. the 6.0 IC is a direct drop in, easy swap too. definitely go with a BB type turbo, cant go wrong

...I really think the 6.0 IC is overrated... I saw about a 50 drop in egts when pulling and thats about it...

But add the drop of the turbo and IC together and it would be a nice drop 50 deg is 50 deg.

A certain overly hairy someone told me there were fitment issues with the 6.0. Debatable?
