7.3 beginners performance parts

I just recently got a 2001 f350 regular cab long box with the 7.3. I put 6 inch lift with 35s and I need more power to turn the wheels a little better. I don't know much about this stuff but I put k&n cold air intake and 5inch straight pipe. What else can I do? What brand programmer? I'm looking for horse power gains without putting the tranny or motor at risk of breaking. Don't wanna spend a lot of money on it either.

First, find search button...not trying to sound like an arse but this gets asked at least 10+ times per day. Second Guages, search for what ones, then intake & exh, then a TS/DP chip with custom tunes....

What this nation needs is cleaner thoughts and dirtier fingernails...

Also to put a chip in your truck, its sudjested that you get a Wicked Wheel, turbo wheel. And all depends on condition of transmission if its going to last or not!
