6.0 Chevy upgrades

Need some opinions on a good air intake for a 6.0 Chevy. K&N, AirRaid, lots of others...but which is better, or all they all about the same?

Someone was also telling me about a website a few months ago that had a lot of upgrades for a 6.0, mainly low resistance plug wires and a few things like that. Supposedly, you can get some pretty good power increases with just a few minor mods. Anyone know what company he was talking about (not able to track him down so I can't ask).

Procharger makes an intercooled supercharger setup for them. Not cheap, but a big power increase. A buddy of mine has one on a 1500 HD w/the 6.0, dyno'd at 498 RWHP, and is still daily driver friendly (except the gas milage, obviously).

I think he has to run higher octane, not sure on the mileage question or the price.
