New powerstroke, any mod ideas?

I just bought a 1995 7.3 powerstroke. I know I want to put an intake, chip, and stacks on it and then down the road some bumpers. Just wondering if anyone had any ideas for some parts to throw on there for some good horsepower gains along with torque for towing. Thanks...

I would go with everything he said, but I think he forget a upgraded intake. The banks is a good kit, but if you want to piece everything together, little by little, I wouldn't go with the banks kit. You can also save money by looking for deals and packages from different websites.

Before you do anything drastic..chip, exhaust....get a good set of gauges installed.

is your truck a stick or auto? you might need to beef up your transmission a little to handle more power if you add lots of upgrades.
