You need a tuner if your going to change anything, even the wrong air filter will throw codes.

Spartan Tuned
AFE air box
4" stainless exhaust
2 1/2" lift
Tinted windows
Those nice heated leather seats
custom built charge pipe

You can go with a simple after market air filter, to complete exhaust, dpf, cat replacement. If you want to prolong your engine life and gain a few extra pony's along with some mpg gain, a DPF/Cat delete is the ticket. You will need a tuner to delete the DPF/CAT. H&S, Spartan are the top two tuners. A 75 to 150 HP tune will make the truck come alive, without breaking anything.
