more power for heavy towing

Hi guys,i'm new to the 7.3 performance world-not the stock 7.3 world.I was a ford diesel tech from 1994 to 2004-so i worked on plenty of 7.3's.

I recently sold my 2000 f250 and bought an early 99 f450 to pull my 48ft gooseneck enclosed trailer.Fully loaded i'm around 25000lbs combined weight.Anyway,it's pretty good from a stop(probably because of the 4.88 gears)but at highway speed it's pretty lazy.I guess the biggest problem is making the power while keeping low egt's.Any help would be great.
