Most parts will not interchange. The powerstroke has a completely different fueling system. It uses a type of electronic fuel injection where yours has a mechanical fuel injection pump. The programming is totally different, so chips will not interchange. You can do most of the same type mods as powerstrokes. High flow intake and big exhaust will help. You will probably need to modify powerstroke kits or make your own. You can turn up the injector pump for more power so you don't need a chip.

Well bigger is not always better, a 5" exhaust will not help a sub 550+ rwhp truck anymore than a 4". In fact you will have a little less low end torque thanks to eddies in the exhaust. So an intake and a 4" exhaust is a good starting place, then I would do some gauges!
