Well you got the exhaust and intake down.
A custom tuned chip will get you the best performance and can be tuned to all future mods you do. Fuel systems, oil systems, etc. It will also be safer for your truck, especially if it's an auto trans.
After that, bigger injectors, HPOP, turbo, fuel system, so on and so on

The truck is a automatic. It runs good now but would like to hear the turbo a little more.

I don't have a wicked wheel. Will it make the turbo sound louder? I thought it was just for the surging. Whats the hp rating on the tw and php chips?

There isn't a "HP rating" really. It's diff for every truck. It's mostly the same as generic tuners but the shifting and the way they make the power is WAY better and safer. Cooler EGTs and better shifting for more power.
The WW does whistle a little more and can help surging too.

We have TW chips in stock. You could add our 12ga USA made harness and 80/100w 4k Kelvin bulbs. We also have fog bulbs 70% as bright as hids but much less $$. WW if you get surge and a boost fooler. Little wakeup for your inj's with Tony's chip would be the new Stealth pump..we are taking orders!

PM me if I can help.
