HP Question

Ok so I love my truck but she has been giving me a ton of problems lately and plus I would like to get an Extended Cab or even better, a Crew cab. So I plan on selling it and getting a new to me OBS 7.3 powerstroke. It will (hopefully) be a CCLB 4x4 5 speed. My question is if I do the following mods what kind of power can I expect. I do not plan on trying to get 500+ hp just get some more power and make it more fun to drive. It will be my daily driver back and forth from work and school. Here are the mods I am currently planning:

DIY 6637 intake
3" DP to 4" straight pipe or stacks
gauges obviously
T500 HPOP
Intercooler
Stage 1 injectors
Some tuning from php or dp
and a south bend clutch to hold the new power.

I am not sure what turbo set up to go with whether to just modify the stocker or go with a D66 any input on that would be greatly appreciated as well.

Thanks in advance for any info/opinions/thoughts/suggestions whatever.

i think the stock turbo will hold the power of ones just fine, but if you have the coin get the d66 just to get more boost with better numbers, it will be smoother than the stock charger, good luck with the cclb, im a ccsb man myself your like 8 hours north of me lol

its definatly gonna be noticable, i have 120cc splits in my truck and its pretty fast compard to any tuned stock injectord obs, but i dont have stage one or 2's, everyone that mods their rigs end up wishing they had just done the stage 2's for the difference in price, so mite as well just start there, but better oil than your stock 15* is a should be

I'm not going to waste my time, the rare chance that I would find one it would be $8,000+ so I will be looking in Houston TX where they seem to be more plentiful. My Uncle lives there and is a diesel mechanic so he can look at anything that I find.
