Newbie Looking for help on what to do next.

Alright guys, im totally new to diesels, i know the basics and i mean basics so talk to me like im stupid.
Alright i have a 2000 F350, crew cab, 4x4 automatic. So far all i got is dp-tuner with 20tow,80tow,80eco,120hp,and 140hp. and guages. But ordering more as soon as i can fidgure out what to get. The truck is a daily driver and i do alot of towing, usually under 10k. I also have a lead foot and hate when hondas pass me. Id really like to be under 14sec quarter But im thinking maybe kinda hard with the weight of the truck.

Heres what im lookin at getting, prolly wont get me to my goal tho.

6637 mod
4in mbrp down pipe
muffler delete
John woods valve body

Anything else i can add to this thats kinda easy?

I dont want to order a whole exhaust yet because im debating on duals or stacks and cant decide.

Also i hear alot about of mods u can do yourself like the 6637, the bb shim. ect Do any of them REALLY gain hp/tq or lower egt?

Like i siad im new to diesel and im sure it shows

if your looking for great power just skip the DIY intake mod and get yourself a AFE stage 2 intake.... also why only a DP and muffler delete? get a full TB exhaust straight piped...

you just need to take the muff. out of the truck and you can do alot of little modes but you should look into a dyi intake you will find alot of stuff you can do if you go to the top of the page and click forums and go down to 99-03 7.3L and go to performace mods. that will be the best bet but to get under 14s that going to need injectors turbo and suporting modes but posible on a everyday driver. this is the cheapest way.

97
afe intake
ats intercooler
3in. down pipe to 4in str8
fpr shim
terminator hpop
warm up valve delete
tw 6 position
southbend clutch
Stage ones from Rosewood diesel
SD IDM

The 4" down pipe will cot you in low end torque, the restriction is the muffler, just replace it with a Walker BTM muffler and you will be fine with a good flowing intake. The DIY TYMAR you plan on is a good one. I like the FTVB valvebody but they all do about the same thing.
Other mods I would do is the CCV, Coolant filter PM me with any ?

So should i stay away from 4in downpipe and get s 3in or just leave it stock? also what turbo and injectors would yall reccomend? id like to hit 13.5 in 1/4. im ordering alot of stuff this week and trying to buy the right stuff the first time.(although turbo and injectors will probably have to wait) Ive done alot of reading online infact to much and now im just lost. I was going to buy a afe stage 2 then a saw the other brand(i cant rember now) with the clear plexiglass top and cone filter, that everyone swears by, then other say 6637 is just as good.

Also I need help guys Stacks or mbrp duals?
