Red face need info!!!

I had just recently bought a 00 f250 7.3L PSD 6spd 2WD, and its my first diesel. I'm planning on spending a lot by upgrading this truck, and was just shooting for some personal opinions and asking advise before i go shopping crazy. below is a list of what i'm planning to buy within the next month/2.

South Bend clutch rated for 700hp and 1200+ ft/lbs tq.
TS 6pos chip, running up to +140hp
K&N intake adding about 50hp (i hope)
i'm not sure which brand yet, but a 5'' turbo back exhaust
newer model headlights,tail-lights/towing mirrors
3'' leveling kit
ranch hand front end/rear bumper

any comments on those please let me know, and my overall question is:
1) Is it necessary to install a EGT sensor, i figured by putting a 5'' turbo back, i'm sure not to have a problem.

2) I've looked around on several websites trying to find fuel injectors at a reasonable price, shooting for 160cc stage 1 or 2 split shot injectors, anything over 50+hp and a link would be outstanding.

Thank you for helping out a rookie, i know there are lots of threads that could cover bits and pieces of this, but i'm practically looking for a diesel guru to take me under their wing and try to "school me up" at the moment my budget is 5k.

I will respond to your PM. I would recommend a stage 1 single shot best for a DD with minimal mods and it will run nice and smooth.

gauges first!! Even with the 5 inch exhaust, you gotta have a way a monitoring whats going on in there. K&N is junk, better off going with the DIY intake setup, less money and better flow, and its not gonna be 50hp from an intake. TS chip would be good, but custom tunes would be better. You could probably do some reman stage 2's and get the custom tunes written for the single shots, and a regulated return and still be under the 5k budget.

egts will be nice and low with stage ones stage twos will put it a little high without a turbo upgrade but it is doable.

Just get guages so you can watch your EGTs. They might never get too high but why chance it?

Probably gonna be good. I know autos better.
TS 6pos chip, running up to +140hp
Get a custom tuned TS style chip. Same chip but with someone writing tunes just for what is on your truck. Much better.
K&N intake adding about 50hp (i hope)
NO! No intake adds "50 HP" but helps your truck breathe. A DIY is a good one.
i'm not sure which brand yet, but a 5'' turbo back exhaust
You don't NEED it. But if you're gonna be going big big big later on, might as well now.

any comments on those please let me know, and my overall question is:
1) Is it necessary to install a EGT sensor, i figured by putting a 5'' turbo back, i'm sure not to have a problem.

Gauges, always. For you, boost, EGT, and then maybe fuel pressure, coolant temp, high pressure oil gauge

2) I've looked around on several websites trying to find fuel injectors at a reasonable price, shooting for 160cc stage 1 or 2 split shot injectors, anything over 50+hp and a link would be outstanding.

Casserly, Rosewood Diesel to name a couple. Just google them.

If you're staying with the stock turbo, get an ATS ported shroud housing for the compressor. And maybe a 1.0 exhaust housing if you're going with bigger sticks. Adrenaline HPOP would be a good idea. Or a Terminator pump. Eventually a bigger fuel system. And bigger turbo. And it keeps going, and going, and going
