What should I tune on my 7.3?

Hey Guys!

I just picked up a '99 F-250, with only 170 miles on a 7.3L diesel, regular cab, eight foot box.

I've done a K&N cold air intake on it already. What else can I do to get more horsepower and torque?

-Magnaflow exhaust?
-Ramping, stacking the CPU?
-I wanna keep the stock injectors.

I want the truck to operate more effortlessly, smooth, and free flowing.
I still wanna keep good fuel mileage.
By the way, I haul a thousand pound welder in the box all the time.

Welder Dude.

Put a diy intake on it instead, make the exhaust free flowing, get gauges, a valve body, and custom tune it. You can't stack anything

I made my Samsung SGH-I997 send this.
Why will a K&N cold air intake ruin my truck?
What does a DIY intake do that's better?

For guages, Banks for turbo boost, trans, what else?

What brand of high pressure oil and fuel crossover lines do you guys recommend?

A four or five inch exhaust? What brand?

You guys know so much, thanks for all the help, much appreciated!
Read man. Filters better, flows better.

Banks? Made of money?
Autometer z series for me. Boost, trans, egt.

I'd only get a solid HPx line. Strictly Diesel.
RiffRaff makes the FRx.

Auto meter z series again.
A valve body controls shifting speed, basically. An upgraded VB firms/quickens shifts, helping to hold that extra power with less heat.
