upgrade help

I have an 01 2500 5 speed cummins truck. I currently have edge/w monitor, Bully dog stage 3 injectors,Cold air intake, 5inch all the way back w/o muffler, Fass 150 and clutch. I have had it this way for a while and I'm looking to do something else to it, but dont know where to go from here. Should I go with a new turbo should they be twins? Should I buy a twins kit or build a twins set up? What about water/meth, any good? I use it as a daily driver alot. I also pull a K5 blazer to the woods alot for offroading. Would like to be over 500 HP. So what do you think I should do next.

You will want twins and sticks to get to 500hp. It is doable with 100's, but its a lot of work. Generally, 100's with a turbo set up will get you to roughly 470ish.

sstockton did you build your twins or did you buy a kit? I'm Pretty sure you put them together yourself. What turbos did you use? Are there any kits out there that are any good? What kind of power are you making? Whats your take on a hotrod vp44 pump I see that some people claim 100 hp but then some claim 50hp. Whats your thoughts on water/meth, any good? I was at a truck show this weekend in Lima Ohio and talked to a few people that had it and one guy says he loves it and the other says he didnt notice any difference in power just EGT's. Is this cause one set it up right and the other didn't.
