I am looking for advice on what to do to my truck next. I know I want a custom chip soon but I also know that I will need to improve my turbo soon. If I get the tuner then change my turbo set up will I have to get it reprogrammed. Also what are the benefits of a new after market turbo compared to a WW and new housing?

Go ahead and get the DP Tuner. You'll be really surprised at the performance. After that, you'll have to get a bigger turbo, injectors, and better tranny.

New Turbo will move more air to the best of my knowledge (over something like an ATS ported housing or WW).

If I was you I'd go w/ a chip, that should settle your quest for power for a while.
