Where from here?

Alright, so I have an 03 6.0l. As of now the only performance mods are:

4" Magnaflow turbo back
K&N air intake

So being new to the diesel world, but having every tool known to man available to me (Thanks to friends!!) Where should I go from here?

I use the truck as a daily driver and would like to be able to switch from good MPG's to scare the Civic driver. ANy thoughts or ideas would be helpful

Head studs then EGR delete. Once you have that done you could go with a good set of 190 cc injectors and maybe a turbo. The 03 turbo should be fine though.

If you have the time and the know how, do EGR delete, studs and a fuel system while you have the cab off. I did mine fuel system while the cab was off and made everything 100 times easier. Just my 2 cents. Plus if you put a fuel system on now, even if you don't upgrade your injectors right away, it will be all ready when you do decide to upgrade.
