Replace the restrictive rear muffler with somthing straight through (removing it all together and it will drone on the highway, very annoying!), turn up pump, get a dial a boost and install it before the waste gate and turn the boost up... The stock turbo will make 18 to 20lbs wide open. 10lbs is stock, I would go 15lbs maybe. I would do some kind of intake maybe a cone filter, though I have a huge *** filter on mine (the aftermarket one everybody uses on the 7.3 Powerstrokes). I cant say I noticed much difference over the stock air box. My car with 12lbs of boost and the above mentioned mods pully my buddy's 99 TDI pretty well. (his is stock but thats still pretty impressive since its got the variable vane turbo and runs about 20 psi!!!)
Hope this helps
