I just bought on 06, 6.0, and I want to keep it mainly stock until I have the cash to do the egr, studs, oil cooler, etc. I just bought the cat delete and muff delete pipes and are going to install soon. I want to do an air intake,but only if it is worth it without tuner mods. I am thinking the AFE stage 2. Is it worth spending the cash, or waiting until I do the necessary engine mods? Plus will an intake put my head studs in jeopardy? Your opinion is appreciated. Thanks.

the intake is worth it IMO the stock filters are pricey,i personally would go with an s&b for the 6.0

an aftermarket intake will make no difference until at least 500+ as stated above. With the mods I have listed it made no difference in power, just much nicer than having to replace the filter, and way less of a pain to get in and out.

IMPO No But like said above much cheaper to clean a filter then replace the high dolla stock filter I had a Elbow on my truck no diff...but the ports were nice for my boost gauge and nitrous.

I put a S&B on my 08 and could feel some power gain. I even put 35s on shortly after and i seem to have the same amount of power if not more then stock tires. lol
