Never modded a diesel

Like it says I have modded a ton of things and built some bad a$$ cars but I have never touched a diesel myself (other than maintaining it ). I had a 2000 that I paid to have mildly built and loved it . I have an early 99 7.3 . It is all stock except I strait piped it . No kitty and no muffler . It dumps at the back of the cab . It has a Super Chips programmer set to heavy tow . I am going to install gauges (trans , pyro , and trans temp ) . After this what should I do . I am not looking to go crazy , just make some more power and role some coal . My truck doesn't smoke a bit now . Are there any free mods like on Stangs ? I want to do all the mods then get my tune so I can tell the tuner everything and be done with it for now ...... . I know , never done .

Very first is gauges
Intake and exhaust
then maybe a chip
Boost fooler
AIH delete
Then if you tow you will have surge, so a wicked wheel, ATS housing, or turbo
Larger injectors for that turbo
oops... toasted trans... BTS time
Water or propane
larger injectors
.

By this you mean a Cold Air Intake or a manifold ?
then maybe a chip
Shouldn't this be after mods ?
Boost fooler
Gotta find this one and see how.
AIH delete
Gotta find this as well
Then if you tow you will have surge, so a wicked wheel, ATS housing, or turbo
It's an early 99 so it already has the wicked wheel . Right ?
Larger injectors for that turbo
Ok this I have done on my last truck , it will be if needed .
oops... toasted trans... BTS time
Tranny is being built and getting a billet converter and 6.0 trans cooler this winter . All by Janice Transmissions .
Water or propane
Not going this far .
larger injectors
.
.
.
Thanks for the info . Hopefully you or someone else can answer the things in red .

E99 no AIH, tuner after gauges and exh/intake so you can have it re-done for other stuff, just a cold air intake intake manifold isn't worth $$ (thats what I have been told). agree with trans cooler (I need to get one ) and converter how about a valve body? and water/meth is a good thing for these trucks if you do alot of towing. lastly yes E99 has WW but also we have smaller intercooler tubes and diff turbo. ok now I am done, hope this helps.

When I first got my E99 it wouldn't blow even a puff of black smoke. Even with intake and exhaust. Then I put my TW chip on and now it'll black out a street. Sometimes I feel bad for the people behind me when I'm merging on the interstate.
