Powerstroke mod syndrome...advice please

Ok So here is a little background on my truck...
1997 F350, XLT, Crew Cab, Long Bed, 4x4, 7.3L Powerstroke, Automatic.

Now here is my question. I already have a K&N cold air intake installed. My next step is going to be exhaust. What exhaust system is the best for the money. I do not want stacks. I would like to get 300hp at the rear tires. I was thinking, Stage 1 injectors, K&N intake, DP Tuner or TW Chip, Exhaust, Boost EGT and Trans temp gauges.

I was looking for advice as to the best parts to use and where to get them. I already have Autometer gauges. They arent installed yet.

Thanks in advance everyone!!!

i bought a mbrp turbo back exhaust for mine and did the muffler delete pipe and i love to way it sounds now.... the only problem with the flat down pipe is you have to cut a lil "V" in the excess metal where the fire wall meets the floor pan to install the new 3" dp, but its no biggie.

k&n's tend to let dust throught the filter hence getting into the turbo and motor. when the dust gets into the pistons than its all over.

Oh, I see. Is there another filter that I can install on the K&N intake tube?
