Question order of upgrades?

What's up guys, I am over here stressing out and probably over thinking things. I have a 2003 ccsb 4x4 f250 7.3 I have the beginning mods <intake, exhaust, programmer, gauges>. Whatever that was easy, but from here, what do I do next? I'm trying to achieve 400-450 hp. For the Trans I'm getting the bts vb and a billet 3disc tc. I got that part but from here what do I tackle. I'm just having trouble trying to figure out what order to do things! What are the next steps? Injectors? Rr? Turbo? Fuel system? HPOP? Any advice on the best order to do things would be greatly appreciated!

IMO your going to need more than just a vb and TC upgrade for the transmission. i would spend the extra money on a fully built transmission before i try and get more power....

Custom tuning, injectors, fuel system, hpop, turbo

Or custom tuning, fuel system, hpop, injectors, turbo

At least that's how I would do it, now matter what sticks you get they can be de tuned to run the stock turbo and fuel system, but the turbo cannot be controlled like injectors can, it needs the fuel to lite it, so that's my 2 cents
