Next step in Performance upgrade?

I'm looking for what I should next.

I have a 2008 Daily Driver. Put about 30-50 City miles every day with Occasional Highway of 4-500 a couple of times a month and towing a 40 foot fifth wheel about 15,000 lb once a month.

So far I have a DPF and DOC delete exhaust, Spartan Phalanx running 275hp EL tune. and that's it.

What should I do next?

Looking for performance and drivability, I do all my own work, where I can.

Thanks.

He has a long way to go before his engine and trans can handle a turbo upgrade...

He needs studs and possibly a trans upgrade with billet parts before upgrading the turbo!
