Keep reading more, you can do more with EFI an exhaust system, leave the stock intake, install a block plate at the EGR and see how you like it. Whatever you do take your time and keep asking questions and reading some more.....

the big reason i am looking at a cai is the stock filter is fairly pricey at my local parts store they run between $80- $100 so i figured it would save me money in the long run

Just because something is advertised well in a magazine doesn't make it a good buy. Like said above, you can get EFILIVE, do the DPF delete with any exhaust, a blocker plate for the EGR, and it you want an intake get a S&B

MBRP, Magnaflow, Flo-Pro, I think they're all good. I prefer MBRP over all. (That's me)
If you're really stuck on changing the CAI (Which I wouldn't) look into an S&B. $45 for a paper filter and they're fairly good filtering. Not as good as stock.
Look into tuning from a good tuner. You can see in peoples signatures easily who they prefer. Duramaxtuner, Rob Coddens(ATP), PPEI, Moonshine tuning, Danville, I think most of them will make sure you get smoke free/non lope tunes and make sure you're getting plenty of reliable power.

Ryderfleetproducts.com, type in duramax on the search bar ($25.66 plus shipping), the filters are good for 25,000 miles minimum in a daily driving application. In reality that's 6 at the most filters in 300,000 miles and the average person only drives 10-15,000 a year... One of the best filters in the Volant CAI with a Donaldson PowerCore filter, this is not the standard powercore like the one purchased on Ryderfleetproducts this one filters somewhere in the range of 99.7% and 4 years 100,000 miles (Donaldson's® PowerCore® Filtration Technology submicron contaminants)

Mishimoto from what I read makes an intercooler that has a great fit along with a radiator and a lifetime warranty...

Mishimoto does, I've seen there intercooler on a 2012 powerstroke. Very nice and the fit was perfect.
