Turbo and other up grades???

Got some questions.

I have '01 7.3L that I want to do some upgrades to. I am currently in Afghanistan so I have lots of time to dream about my truck. I don't want to turn it into some massive money bit of a race truck or anything. Just give more power all around and want to do it right. I want a new turbo, intercooler (with all the new tubes), exhaust, and probably a PD F6 tuner with some stage one injectors. The problem is I don't know what I am missing and whose stuff I should use. Been thinking of a Banks PowerPack system but I hear allot of bad things about Banks.

Let the suggestions flow

Would probably get more responses in the 7.3 performance section.

Some of Banks products are ok... But overpriced. Intercooler, one off a 6.0 will be one of the better/cheaper options, but from what I've heard, you won't get a big drop in EGT's. Maybe 50-100 degrees.

If you don't plan on going bigger in the future, a 38r would be a good turbo. Up from that, a S366.
Intake: DIY, Tymar, or CAI if you want.
Exhaust: Cheapest you can find a 4 or 5" MBRP, Diamond Eye..
Injectors: Full Force Diesel, Rosewood, Swamps...
