Looking to get more power out of the 7.3

I have a 2001 f250 7.3 powerstroke. I'm wanting to do some performance upgrades. Right now I have a diablo sport predator programmer, k&n airintake , 4 inch stainless exhaust, adrenline hpop, and a built tranny. I was wondering what the next best upgrade would be for the money. Injectors? Turbo? Lift pump?

We don't have a lift pump.
If you were to want injectors toy would also need custom tunes.
If I were you I would get a billet turbo wheel and PHP Hydra and go from there

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.

Ok thanks. My programmer can have custom tunes. I'm not very familiar with the php hydra. What are the benefits of it compared to my programmer? And also I was talking about a fass fuel pump ( lift pump)

Welcome to the org.

The Air dog is a huge waste of money on these trucks and adds nothing.
Google "hutch mod" and it will take you to guzzle's website. There is lots of good info there.

The Diablo may accept custom tunes, but to the best of my knowledge there aren't any of the good 7.3 tuners using that platform.
There are hundreds of threads about the Hydra out there, just need to look.

Or maybe a custom tuned chip, I would pitch the k&n too, they are known for dusting turbos. Google "7.3 napa 6637 mod" cheap intake mod.
