Couple of questions

I was wondering about a couple of upgrades I've been looking into and wondering if they are really worth the money. I have the custom tunned x3 from innovative and gearhead, I have a Airaid intake, Water Methanol injection, and 4 inch dual exhaust. My next upgrades are injectors and a turbo, but Ive looked at a Air Dog II, BD boost fooler, the banks intake elbow and a Intercooler. are any of these upgrades really worth the money? How much power would I be look at with each?

2008 Ford F-250 Lariat Crew Cab 4x4, AFE 5 inch down pipe back exhaust, SCT X3 off road tuner with RCD 450 tune, FLO PRO EGR Delete, S&B cold air intake, Kenwood in dash screen with Bluetooth, Rockford 12" sub, Nitto Dura Grappler 35x12.50 20 inch tires.

I totaly agree with this statement, a boost fooler is not needed with custom tunes, there is no point in upgrading to a bigger intake elbow as the elbow is not the restriction....its the intake.
From what I have read a gogo intake manifold decreases egts better than an aftermarket intercooler.

Might want to look at gogo's ported intake. It'll help with the turbo and injectors. Better more even air flow across the cylinders and lower egt's.
