One item that you can get that will increase power and drop egt's is a larger turbo. The powermax is highly recommended even for stock trucks.

A Powermax and Innovative 8-Hole 155's would be a perfect combo for towing, but still great to play around with on the Xtreme Street tune. And with the 8-hole 155's, you should see a pretty significant bump in fuel mileage.

Don't worry about your tranny. The Torqshifts can handle upwards of 500 HP. As long as you keep up with fluid and filters you should be fine. There are plenty of guys running 190's and a Powermax with a stock tranny.

Also, FICM tuning would be a good thing to add to that list.
