help do mods in right order!

just picked up a 95 PSD, manual trans, 4.10 gears with 165k miles. All it has is straight pipe. It will be used primarily to pull 9000lbs 5th wheel.
Heres what I got planned;
1. Intercooler. Who can link me to a DIY link for a SD swap? help with egt and future stuff
2. Downpipe; will I gain anything?
3. Guages/chip. Best deal Ive seen is boost/pyro and pod for around $240. With a TW chip Im in over $600. Any bad reviews of the Edge CS? Edge is right down the road if I have problems
Edge Products: Product
4. Injectors/turbo- Im open to suggestions here. I would love this thing to pull as good as my 6.7 Cummins I just sold. Thanks

Definately do the down pipe. the stock one is a terrible restriction for letting the engine breath.

here is how I would go about this in order...

Downpipe to go with your straight pipe
Cold air intake
gauges
custom chip (tw or other) NO EDGE
Since you are a manual trans you will need a clutch to hold this new power
Intercooler
Injectors

Wouldn't you want to do the custom chip last so that it will be burned with all of the modifications that have been added - especially if you are doing injectors?

1997 F250 XLT Crew Cab 4x4 Short Bed
Tymar Intake, 6 pos. TW Chip, Stage 1's, BTS
3" DP 4" w/a muff but w/out a kitty & 5" tip
TSM Rear Disc Brake Conversion, Viper Keyless Entry & Remote Start
King Pin Dana 60, SD rear B codes, Bilsteins 4600
Ranch Hand Replacement Front & Rear Replacement Clear Headlights
Ruff Tuff Seat Covers, Westin Nerf Bars
16x10 Pacers W/315 75x16 Duratracs

Most importantly

if you get a tw you get free reburns!!! so why not also if it takes a while to get to the injectors you have power now

yeah the edge tuners are nothing compared to custom tunes for a 7.3, and Id basically do everything in the order listed above, and the power level you want to acheive will tell us the right injector, turbo, HPOP, etc combo for you

I have the Edge Evo and I really like it, although i haven't had it very long. I pull around 7000lbs worth of trailer and horses most of the time and I have gained approx 2mpg with it on the 100hp/200ft.lb setting. No idea what the actual hp/torque gain REALLY was but the difference from stock is amazing.

You guys would recommend going away from the Edge to something else?
