What kit is it did you go with the dry filter or what did you see much difference in fuel milage? Do you run a programmer if so what kind Im not wanting any thing crazy at most 100 horses. Thanks for the help

My personal truck has the dry filter on it and I clean it about once a month. The cool thing about the Stage 2 is when you shut the hood it only sucks outside air instead of the hot underhood air. I only have the Quadzilla Max Mileage. The edge programmers are good for the 6.0 the Juice w/Attitude would run you about $675 and would give you the following power levels.
Level 0: Stock
Level 1: 25 Horsepower – 50 Foot Pounds of Torque
Level 2: 45 Horsepower – 100 Foot Pounds of Torque
Level 3: 55 Horsepower – 150 Foot Pounds of Torque
Level 4: 60 Horsepower – 180 Foot Pounds of Torque
Level 5: 80 Horsepower – 220 Foot Pounds of Torque

Let me know with an email if you want to order. Quadzilla makes a good chip for the 6.0 as well Quadzillapower.com--Tim

Correction the Juice W/attitude will run $599.20 and the AFE air intake will run you $489.99 part# 54-11022 which is not the most expensive but its the one I have.

Why waste money on an aftermarket intake when you can just remove the front cover off the filter box, which gets rid of your restriction due to the small hole that the cover has on it to suck air through? I dont have any proof but I am willing to bet you get as much or more airflow from doing that as you would with a $500 aftermarket filter & intake. Just my thoughts.For a programmer/chip, try the SCT flash tuner it adjusts your transmission also for the power changes and it gives you some insane power!

ya if your wantin a good chip do a custom tuned sct check out elitedieseleng.com tunes by tadd from what i have seen they are bad ass. but as far as gettin the same air flow by removin the front cover rather then goin with an aftermarket that is not correct. i dont recommend the s&b we have not had much luck with them. check out and try the afe stage 2 pro-dry that would be your best bet if you dont want an oiler

Try an airaid cold air intake, and if you're gonna do that I'd go ahead n get an aftermake intake manifold as well

Lol that's funny.  N as for the intake manifold, try a CFM+ small mouth or an accufab power elbow.
