Well ill give ya some advice too i guess. Our 04.5 we just put on the new edge CTS and we gained exactly 1.4 mpg , until the edge crapped out and now we are on our 2nd edge box. From my experiences with our cummins and we have 2 now but have had 6+ . My best experiences for setup and mileage have been this .
Smarty jr or Smarty SR
4" turboback straight piped exhaust
FASS Platinum

We have run this setup on my 03,04,05,06 and consistantly across the board got 13-16mpg pulling and 21mpg hwy. We tried K&N filters but they let way to much dirt into turbo and ended up screwwing a couple up. Went to a diesel shop around here and the guy said throw the K&N away they dont work good for diesels and do more damage than good. So we started running the S&B and loved it. Completely sealed box and doesnt let any dirt in. As for the EDGE products i have noticed our EGTS skyrocket when pulling heavy and with the smarty we never saw above 1150. So hope this helps but we have tried a ton of combos and the setup above is what seemed to work the best for us in all our trucks
