start with the basics and get an intake and exhaust. be sure to replace the stock downpipe with a 3 in. gauges are always needed esp. if your gonna be towing. after that get a chip with some custom tunes and you'll be more than capable to tow that boat

he is capable now, soon as you add gauges and a chip tho, your gonna notice how easy it is to modify this old 7.3L and the potential, but start with intake, down pipe, 4 or 5" exhaust, do gauges, custom tunes, and you will re fall in love with it

If you say the truck runs good i wouldnt be worried about a thing besides the transmission. Get some gauges first thing and make sure your trans temps arent too high. A good idea esp. if your gonna be towing is a bigger trans cooler like a 6.0 trans cooler. Those can be expensive so what i did was bought a second cooler and ran it inline with the stock cooler

Everything they said is correct. Only thing I'm going to add is a BTS valvebody and a billet torque converter wouldn't hurt. Not necessary bit will make the truck tow better, and will extend the life of the transmission, but again not required.
