Looking at your pictures, I don't see anything besides your turbo (put your finger on it and take another picture). You still have the original snakehead in there so yes, absolutely get a full exhaust kit. 4" is all that's needed but I like the sound of a 5" better. Change all your fluids, filters, and check the wheel wells and mirror posts for rust and stuck mud. Eventually you will need to pop the valve covers off and swap in known good glowplugs and VC gaskets with all wiring. The VC gaskets are normal wear-and-tear parts, they should be replace every couple years (3-4). Get TWO (2) new CPSs and install one and keep the other in the glovebox with a 10mm wrench. Those love
to go out when you need the truck the most. Give it a bath and some love and she'll pony you around forever.
Now, these 1st gen PowerStrokes are not overly powerful and to make them powerful takes good money. You cannot crank the timing out and parts are not (well, should not) be bought in "Stage #'s". Please look up the HUEI injection system and learn as much as possible on how it works. These are very
different injection systems that only older Internationals and most CATs engines work on. Your local diesel shop that works on Cummins or Isuzu engines may not know what it takes to work on these engines. They are by no means hard to work on but they are very different then what else is out there. If you need to have a shop work on the truck I'd sooner take it to tractor shop than a common diesel shop.
