For that power you will need:
Intake
Exhaust
Gauges
stage 1 injectors
custom tuning.

That should be there. Other stuff to consider:
17* HPOP
Modded IDM
Turbo upgrade
intercooler
etc

I agree with Nick, and would put the Intercooler as a priority on the list. Not going to see any more power out of the intercooler but the advantage of keeping the EGT's lower with the bigger injectors will help quite a bit.

I run TW tunes and love them...
Tony Wildman Chip

That link is from a sponsor on here and he will take care of you if you have any questions...find his site in the sponsor section towards the bottum of the home page(stealth automotive)

As far as turbo, I have the stock still and it seems to do fine with the stage I's.

I am running a SD intercooler and also used the SD piping with a little fab work.

My stage I's are from rosewood diesel shop, and they are a great upgrade over stock.

best tuners are either Swamps or Tony Wildman chips.

a popular upgrade is the dominator 66 turbo from beans for about $1100.

injectors are up to you. I am going to do rosewood DIY stage 1's for about $450

Swapped D-60
Locked front and rear
160 sticks
Wildman Tunes
Hood Stack
OFE clutch
T500 HPOP
Linex rockers
35" MTR Kevlars
and a bunch more...

Any custom tuner.... Tony Wildman, PHP, Beans, Swamps, Gearhead, Diesel Innovations, etc.

Newer PSD intercooler is the most cost effective. Turbo, I would go with a d66 for this level. Injectors you can get from Rosewood or PM me for the number of the place that I got mine for a great deal
