You should post in the 7.3 area of the forum and the members there can help you out. I will tell you this, blowing smoke is totally uncool. Makes others who drive diesels look bad.

To get the low end power you want and all the other stuff (aside from the smoke)
Look into custom tunes, a quick spool 1.0 housing, larger injectors, and supporting mods like fuel, high pressure oil, and what not
