If you were building a motor from the ground up I'd put in a different cam but if it's still in the truck I wouldn't worry about it too much. lots of trucks are still running the stock cam, maybe talk to Matt @ Gearhead if you're really worried, he makes cams for the 7.3.

Assuming you didn't mention turbo size you're going to need a bigger turbo, the GTP38 and 38R won't support your goals.
Look along the lines of H2e, S468 etc.

I was looking at getting a 66/74/.91 box charger with the t4 flange and up pipes.
