For starters I would recommend getting rid of the edge. Start with a custom tuned 6 pos. chip and a set of gauges. See how you like it that way before dumping cash on hard parts. Do the cheap, and supporting mods first before you start upgrading turbos and injectors.

Ahh... That's a different story then. First you have to think about what you use the truck for primarily. Then you have to make a goal for where you want the truck to be, and last you have to decide your budget. Answer these three things and it will be easier to help you.

Disclaimer... I'm not an expert on the 7.3's but there are a lot of people here that are. I know my way around a bit but there are better... But the questions I asked you are a good place to start for any motor build.

You need a wheel for sure and the WW would be my choice but, remember, it's really just the stock wheel that should be there and not a performance increase (just the return of the whistle )

If you get a good tuned chip you'll get all the boost you want. I took banks chip out & put PHP 6 pos. in & boost went from 20 to 26-28. The power & shifts are like night & day.
