stock intakes flow very well no need to change it really. As for a power adder/chip, most will tell you that the SCT is the best for the 6.0

'04 6.0, 4.5" lift, straight piped, SCT tunes by Innovative Diesel, studded, coolant filter, EGR delete Tru track in the rear, sounds by JL audio some other odds and ends

SCT with custom tunes is the best you can get for the 6.0l. It's the best tuner that controls the trans. The sad part is you won't see a huge jump in mpg, if any at all. The stock air cleaner will handle up to 500hp and clean the air better than most of the major brands that are available. If your gonna be towing that 30' horse trailer, I would also suggest getting some gauges ( trans,pyro,fuel pressure,boost).

On a non-studded truck I would use a trans only tune. With studs you can get a custom tow tune that will give the extra power needed and be safe for the motor and trans. Now this is all based on the driver, you need a little common sense when towing, and know the limits of thier truck as to not push it beyon the motor or trans capability.
