    Welcome to the site!! I would just get a replacement K&N, I dont think that the full intake is really worth the money. If you want to keep the stock exhaust setup, just go to a local shop and see what they offer. Midas offers Flowmaster but they may be too loud for what you want. I have a Flo-Pro from my local guy and like it waaaaaaaay more then the magnaflow I had, its only loud when I floor the truck. Around town just a nice calm rumble, with NO drone on the highway (my magnaflow had tons of drone)

    Welcome to the club!
    As far as intake goes, i think the K&N cold air intake is WELL worth the money.
    As for the exhaust, i love my magnaflow. its not as loud as i want it, but its got a nice tone. it does, however, have that cruise drone and has some volume at take off, depending on how hard you gas it.
