7.3 Build Up

What all can you do to these 7.3's to build them pretty strong. I'm lookin to make around 500-550 HP. Some things i'm for sure getting is stage 1 injectors, turbo, air dog, gauges, exhaust, and a different intercooler. what else should i do? i'm also looking into an ATS stage 4 tranny. Any input is apreciated...

well to get 500+ you will need Big oil, large Hybids 250cc+ and a turbo.
stg 1s will get you in the 400's maybe.

the only reason i got the ats trani was they were so close to my house about a year ago and they were about 1,000 cheaper installed than a bts but now i would definatly go with a bts, i have a bud that just got a NADP trani and it seems to be working good. i havnt run to any problems yet with the ats trani yet but i herd that for people not living close to just bring in to them its a pain in the ***... also i havnt herd to many good things about the suncoast trani's have herd good things about the torque converters though

also somthing to consider i have riding in both a 7.3 with a suncoast and mine with a ats. without tuning for the trani like with a ts chip it doesnt like to shift proparly and lock up is really hard cherps the tires under throttle
