So I picked up a 2008 Polaris Outlaw 525s LE with very little hours he other day and I'm trying to decide on a new CDI any suggestions? Also, I was told that I should run Rotella T6 5w-40 instead of the Amsoil I run in the rest of my quads. what do yall think?

The Rotella is a good oil.  As for aftermarket CDI's, most are made by Procom as near as I can tell.  I have one and didn't care for it.  It made my quad ping all the time and I had to jet way up for it to make it stop pinging (I think they just have too much advance built in).  Mine ran allot better with a stock box and proper jetting.  However.... Maybe if you were running an bigger cam with a stock compression, it might be the ticket to getting back some lost bottom end power and because of the lower cylinder pressures it probably wouldn't ping.  Or maybe if you were running the stock cam and race gas it would be ok.  You won't gain anything with the higher rev limit either, because the stock 525 runs outta power long before the stock 9700 rpm limit.
  Now Vortex has a CDI that is programmable and works great... but I cant afford it.  I actually use an old reflashed stock CDI that has a higher Rev limit. 

Personally id use the stocker over any of the cheap aftermarket Procom boxes.

Cam?  Depends on what you want to do with it... and how long you want it to last.  The 806 is a drop in and probably won't effect longitivity any.  The 833 you'll lose some bottom end grunt but after you adjust your riding skills, you'll get used to it and enjoy the top end rev out.  The potential problem is the 525 crankshaft doesn't seem to like long bouts with high rpms and have been know to "spread" and eat up bearings.  The 833 would be the most I'd use for long term, as long as you don't use an aftermarket cdi that raises the rev limit.  And the 806 would probably be the best and safest.
I'd say and 806, 41mm carb, and a decent exhaust (even a slip on) and you'll have a great all around combination for not much cash.  I doubt you'll run up against any 450's (even high compression on race gas) that will out run you.

You can run the Ams oil, It will be just fine!!! T6 is great also.  I like the 8/06 cam Part #59036010100 for most this is a good gain. Add the 12.5 to piston and you will like it even better, then comes bigger carb, Bigger valves, then some unshrouding of the valves, little port work, then a bigger cam ....shall I continue! LOL Now if it's the 500 motor, higher compression, web cams, vortec or Dyna cdi. Then maybe the bigger valves and better valve springs and maybe a little port work then a big bore.
