Next step....power

Hey guys I'm relatively new to the boards but I've had my 7.3 for around a year and a half. I've done a full transmission teardown and upgraded to stage II gears, and a custom built billet torque converter. I've also done the DIY big short ram Napa intake and 3" dp to 4" back and a banks big hoss chip. Truck has stock engine, injectors and Turbo(all with around 140k miles) I've been pondering either doing a rebuild on the Turbo with a banks quick spool side and maybe a wicked wheel. But I've also been thinking about stage I injectors. Let me know what you guys think and what you'd do if you had $1200-1500 to play with.

also might want to check your current HPOP. if it's weakening you would want to look into an upgrade to support injectors
