Performance help! Out of ideas

need some help from you experienced 6.0 guys. I have a 2004 f250 6.0 with 4in turbo back exhaust, egr delete, afe stage 2, sct IDP custom tunes, gauges, 6.4 banjos, blue spring. Happy with the performance want to go to the next level. Purchasing an airdog2 soon with that on the truck can Eric tweak my tune to give me more power now that I have the fuel supply? Also what's my next performance step?

No not studded yet! Turbo injector and studs are the next move?

Studs I have talked to a handful of people and they were not to impressed with the tuned FICM. It helps but studs should be the priority before anything else.

get studs and get new tunes for studded engines and you will gain some more power.

If you are doing turbo and inj, I would start with the powermax turbo.

Send your FICM to Jess Warren, he will do a mild tune on it for a decent price, then do studs and you will be set for roughly 190's or so and a Powermaxx.

Lariat Swap
6" Rough Country on 35's
5" TB w/ 7" dump, Matt's SRL XX tune (LOVE IT!), Powermaxx, EGR Delete, Banjo's, Fuel Spring upgrade

more to come!
