my first powerstroke input needed and welcomed

hello everyone as it states this is my first powerstroke i have always wanted one and when i got the chance to trade my gasser dodge for a 95 f-250 with 95xxx and little rust i jumped at the chance. now as i drive this truck every day i wanted to make it as reliable as possible so, i emiditly did a complete coolant flush and new water pump along with thermostat. i have also done glow plugs and injector harness along with fuel heater and filter. cps sensor has been changed. both battery's were cleaned tested and terminal ends were protected. i than cleaned all the grounds that i could possibly find and in doing so i found that one of the main ground cables to the block had been frayed and corroded all the way through so i made a new one.
now that i have done all the preventative maintenance i want to start making some more power and so far i have ordered a south bend clutch kit due to the factory clutch slipping and a 3" dp form mbrp. and now i have come to needing to ask what to do next what is a good direction to head in? for good power and reliability? any and all comments are fine and how have i done so far?

sounds like your on the right track when you cut the old dp out to put the 3inch one in make sure you push the pinch weld in for clearance and it would also be a good time to get rid of the kitty and muffler. then do an air intake most of us use a napa 6637 filter and get rid of the factory box. next comes gauges since you have a manual i would reckamend getting boost and egt

You can also do the California fuel pressure regulator kit to bump your fuel pressure, but don't go over 70psi.
