I'd say talk to one of the site sponsors, and get an intake, alot of the guys with the 7.3s have a DIY intake or something, that'll help the engine breathe better. Is the MBRP a straight pipe, removing the kitty and the muff will help it breathe better as well as lower your egts. In terms of more power, I'd either look at the TS 5 or 6 pos chip, or maybe a bully dog programmer. I tried the triple dog on my 6.0 before I got the livewire and it is a pretty stout unit, lots of power on the high setting. But definitely go through the site guys, they'll get you the best prices.

Better Breathing...

Do either the DIY intake or AFE Stage II... will also give you a little more whistle. Im guessing you have the 3" downpipe with your MBRP system...

ATS 1.0 turbo housing, quicker spool and more boost.

Then maybe a custom chip with just a couple of settings like a tow and extreme setting... since its the farm truck.

Glad to see that the guys with your model year are getting into it, they should be able to tell you the best way to go.
Good Luck.
