7.3 into high 13's

I have been doing a little research and was trying to figure out what kinda mods I would need to run in the high 13's in a 1/4. I have a 4wd extended can short bed. As of now just have 4" turbo back exhaust and superchips programmer, any ideas or suggestions? Also just did gauges last week.

Engine:
Injectors(DDP, Full Force, Industrial Injection - your choice.)
GTP-38r or H2E turbo,
Water-Methonal and/or Nitrous (won't recommend propane unless you do the water/Methonal for sure.)
Oring'd head (heads recommended but not required) and gaskets and ARP or H1 studs.
Make sure you have a forged rod setup.
(optional items, 6.0 IC (or other aftermarket), AFE Blade Runner or CFM+ intake manifolds)
Then - Tuning for all the above...
EDIT - forgot to add in the HPOP upgrade.

Trans:
Built stage 1 or 2 trans of some kind, and torque converter(ATS, Suncoast, etc...)
Tuning for the trans (included in the chip tune, or stand alone(Banks, ATS, etc))

I have been thinking about the bladerunner itakemanofold, are those worth the money? That was the next thing on my shopping list.

The CFM+, AFE and "Pusher" intakes are a larger volume but the kicker is they're 2 piece units, where the stock is a shared 1piece. Just less heat transfer off the turbo.

The AFE and Pusher intake already have pre drilled and tapped holes for
Boost gauge, Nitrous, water/meth and so on - injection ports.
So making it a little easier to add on stuff.

That said - Is it worth it stand alone - probably not.
But for other performance add-on's, I suspect it helps a bit.

This will literally be cheaper in the long run if you insist on running 13's or 12's

I'm not knocking your plan though. Fast 7.3's are bad a$$

PIS 175/80's, Van Turbo with EBPV, BD Billet Wheel
Lots of money spent at RiffRaff
Holley fuel pump, in tank mods, crappy riding leveling kit, DP-F6, 5 Gauges+Edge CS in dash, CB radio in Dash, over 100 goofy little mods
Still pretty slow, just less slow now.

Be happy with 13.9's lol not really 12's and would love to have a 6.4l but may have to wait for awhile! Haha I'm gonna try to make the 7.3 last until the 6.7l gets cheap enough to afford.. It's crazy of how much power the 6.4s make with minimal upgrades.. I remember being in one when they very first come out and stock seemed to run great!

it will be cheaper no doubt. you can pick up a 08 sc/lb xl 6.4 with around 100k miles for 10to 15 k depending on your area and put the 1500 dollar upgrades on it which is tuner exhaust and intake and run 13s and high 12 all day long.
