I would put a better quality filter on than the k&n...they flow more air because they're more porous. Intake sediment is something no engine needs, especially diesels. And welcome to the forum!

As far as mileage, that's mostly up to your right foot. Seems staying below 2k RPMs is the magic number to help with mileage from what I've read a couple times.

Read about the PPE airbox mod, ditch the K&N if you can. You'll here about timing, I don't think it helps as much as it could hurt. And, the Diomand Eye down pipe is a good idea, turbo back really means down pipe back.

Thanks ya the truck came with the k&n but he gave me the stock filter set too do I'll look into that! I'm thinkin about dumping the exhaust down after the back axle? Any sound difference that would make! Ain't lookin for any crazy amounts of hp just wanting it to run good an strong! I'm thinkin ad the efi mild max an PVC revroute with some kind of fuel filter like air dog an egr blocker plate I should be running good!

Efi= Milage
PCV Rerout= Engine Longevity, Egr block

Will be good for both. Dumping your exhaust will make it resonate off the pavement instead of in one direction.
Sorry, didnt see you already had an egr block on your list.
