What should my next mod be?

I don't post on here too often but am on here just about every day reading away so I can eventually post and give advice when I know what i'm talking about

Anyways, I have a 04 F250 with the following power mods, a magnaflow 4" turbo back, no cat, cfm+ intake elbow, zoodad mod and a x3 running the free spartan hybrid race tune and it moves for a big truck but I still want more out of it so I can have some fun every once and a while. I was thinking of stepping it up to one of the innovate tunes as I read a lot of good things about them on here as well as getting a snow performance methanol injection kit as it should add power, longevity and mpg's but I am still new to the diesel scene and do not know too much so any and all recommendations are welcome. I do not really do any towing but I do plan on plowing in the winter if that matters.

Thanks

I think that is a great idea for your next mod. You know one thing that make our trucks run a bit more powerful is CLEAN Synthetic oil. If your not running it, Maybe look into it. Our injectors a much more temperamental to high flowin clean oil.

Be careful with the water/meth, especially if you plan on running race tunes + meth. I would definitely get head studs before you consider running both together. Now, you'd probably be okay just running the water to lower your EGTs. I've thought about doing that myself.

How much money are you looking to spend? The order I'd go is 1) studs and EGR delete, 2) intercooler, 3) upgraded lift pump like a FASS system, 4) injectors, 5) turbo, and maybe consider throwing in an upgraded trans somewhere in the mix.

The sky is the limit if you've got the cash.

I agree, You should see around 20 H.P with water, And lower EGT's. But that is all research and hear/say. I do not run Water/Meth.

My truck is still under warranty so I was hoping I would be able to get them to cover the labor on the stud job if the factory studs ever go, same goes for the egr. My injectors were also just replaced with new factory ones and injectors cost $$$$$$ so I don't think i could afford that.

I was considering the intercooler but it is a little over budget and I am hearing a lot about the FASS but never really looked into it so dont quite understand what it does.

I was trying to stay under $1000.

It sounds like you have a pretty great set up on your rig. I still like your water/Meth idea
