96 powerstroke with mods... what next?

I bought this truck immediately after it had a set of performance injectors installed. I don't know how big they are and the shop that did it won't tell me. I am an ex-car and school bus mechanic of 8 years. I know to a degree what I am doing however I figured it was time to join up with you guys since I am asking questions that I can't get answers for here locally.
here goes...
I have a 96 powerstroke lifted 6 inches on 315's, it has a 4.10 gear, superchips power programmer, fuel pressure shim mod, eot mod, 10k mod, adjusted tps, cold air intake, stock turbo,no cat, no muffler. that's all I can think of for now.

It still has the crush tube exhaust downpipe and I have been wanting a t.s. 6 position or a tw chip. I want to be able to blow smoke at people to show off a bit and I love to enjoy the truck and just drive it. I beat on it a bit. I don't do pulls, or even off road it. I just want a powerful truck to drive and show some local what diesels will do. I plan on doing exhuast, fmic on it and electric fan soon. I also have a solid axle conversion for it. I just want some suggestions.

Watch out when doing the EOT mod and plus a chip... too much timing and it'll put holes in your pistons! Plus I thought it was only for automatics? Whats the tps?

tps... sor pot sensor

sorry I build mustangs for a living now. I have been so used to call it a tps instead of a pot sensor. anyways I elongated the mounting holes on the pot sensor as it didn't even read 4.0 volts at wot so I elongated the holes set the base voltage to .70 volts and it bumped the top end voltage to 4.3 volts... factor it was only around .3 volts at closed throttle position. this mad so much of a difference I absolutely could not believe it. there is no more gradual dead pedal for the first inch or so of pedal it really takes off like a gasser... instantaneously. love it! this is always the first step in tuning my mustangs so I had to try it on the powerstroke.
worked great

yeah, I guess you meant to say stick shifts actually they have found it works on both I guess. either way it bumps the timing. I did notice it had less black smoke with the eot mod. b4 it would pour out some smoke .... not like a cummins but it would do it enough to piss off bicyclists and make me laugh about it.lol!!

powerstroke mods

the eot mod. I used a 4.7k ohm resistor I spliced it in parallel on one of the wires going to the engine oil temperature sensor. it restricts a little voltage via the resistor and tells the computer the engine is cooler than it really is in order to advance the timing. I noticed a difference with it however, some of my black smoke disapeared subsequently due to the advanced timing.

also I will add that my transmission shifts so much better now after the dialing in the pot sensor. it still amazes me how little it takes for these truck to respond.

are there any other mods I need to help you out with?

10k mod is extremely popular so I assume you know that one. if not let me know. or you can call me.
