Best 7.3 upgrades?

I have a 2001 7.3 and it was all stock with 130,000 miles on it. For under a thousand dollars, what would be the best performance/ fuel economy upgrades to do. I have already done cold air intake. Please help. Need advise. Thanks

Thanks, brother, but could you please describe the products or parts for someone that knows little about these products or doing modifications to vehicles. The only thing I understood in your lists as the exhaust, which has been done. Thanks

DP infinity would be a good option. Get tunes, gauges and diagnostics all rolled into one.

PIS 175/80's, Van Turbo with EBPV, BD Billet Wheel
Lots of money spent at RiffRaff
Holley fuel pump, in tank mods, crappy riding leveling kit, DP-F6, 5 Gauges+Edge CS in dash, CB radio in Dash, over 100 goofy little mods
Still pretty slow, just less slow now.

This is my answer as well

To the OP... You can check out the Infinity HERE if you are interested.

All the tuning/chips, bolt-on stuff ,will mean JACK, if truck aint running correctly. If anything, get yourself the AutoEnginuity first, then proceed with caution.
