Looking for more performance

so i think im ready to start getting more done to my Early 7.3L 240k miles
I drive the truck everyday and, also plan on keeping her for a while...
Don't Get me wrong it smokes cars now but i want to stay in front

What's done:
6" lift on 37's
Bank's Big Head turbo actuator
Voodoo Boost Controller
6637 Intake
Trans Work- Heavier Clutches/Billet Torque Converter
4" Turbo back to stacks
Glow Shift Pillar Gauges - Pyro/Boost/Trans
TS with Tony Wildman Custom tunes

What im debating upon and would like opinions:
Stage 1- 160CC injectors
FRx / HPx
Harpoon/Hutch Mod

let me know if theres other things i should be focused upon

thanks

if you do tow alot you could regear it that'll make a pretty decent difference

with 37s regearing it makes it the equal of a stock truck. right now on your truck with 37s the end gear ratio is probably in the low to mid 2s regearing it to 4.10s even is going to get that closer to stock gear ratio. the tires create your final gear so you wouldn't be pegging the rev limiter at 80 it be the exact same as a stock truck.

i've never heard anyone complain about that. when i did that on my dodge gasser it changed its acceleration and everything alot. and it is alot easier on your transmission.
