Good combo of parts?

Ok I got a 2003 7.3 monster and just about to order the following parts
Cooling mist diesel water meth kit
Afe blade runner intake
Gtp38r
Turbo master waste gate controller
Tony's tuned 6 posit chip
Auto meter z series boost and pyro
Bosch tech ipr
Air heater delete
Frx
T500 hpop
How well might these work together and had anyone had problems if so what and possibly why?

i have a 2000 7.3 with a 6 speed, and i have a very similar combo. i have the 38R, an AFE intake, Snow Perf water/meth inj, dp tuner 6 pos chip, 4" turbo back, cfm manifold, 160cc/100% injectors and just installed the Turbo Master today, which is an awesome upgrade by the way. I have an Adrenaline HPOP, a 203* thermostat and a Mishimoto Intercooler sitting next to me that i didnt get around to doing today and i think its a pretty good combo, the truck gets up and goes and i have 37" tires on it. it was running pretty dirty on the highest tune before i put the Turbo Master on but now the boost picks up so quick i cant even floor it, it really is an incredible little upgrade.

A couple words of advice though, if you can find it there is a lubricant that is called "freeze off" i think, that will pop you stock exhaust clamps off on their own, all you have to do is loosen the bolt you dont even have to do much prying. Also put the turbo master on before you put it in the truck, i shredded my hands trying to shove it all the way back there to change that out. and with the FRX make sure you soak those things in wd 40 or something, they are stubborn, and try to find that socket for those things too, i forget what size it is but its a 6 point, works the best but if you cant find it vise grips can pull off the job too.

And i havent had a single problem with all of it, what size injectors are you running or plannins on running?

Yea thatll be a pretty solid setup, ive never had it on a dyno or anything so i dont exactly know what its putting down but i think its somewhere in the neighborhood of 400-450 hp just guessing from one of the articles Diesel Power pulished on what it takes to get to certain power levels

yea i have the 4" mbrp exhaust running out back. in my street tune it was clean except if i was too low in a gear and tried to stomp it, in the hot tune i would smoke everything but with the Turbo Master on there it builds up boost so quick now the only time it smokes is in the hot tune and even there it only smokes for a second, not even close to as bad as before the turbo master.

I would save the money on the AFE intake, it is a waste of money unless you are going just for looks, you will have no power gain. Also you your going to putting down a little power you HAVE to monitor your transmission temp with a gauge or your going to ruin it. I would also take that money from the intake and put in a jw or bts valve body and a 6.0 trans cooler you will thank me later
