Well, what you need to do is figure out where you want to be for power. Do you want 400 hp, 500 hp, 600hp? The higher you go the more expensive it will be (like you didn't know that!). Once you get your transmission in then you will really be surprise as to how much power you have now! Far as ones to stay away from, the only one that comes to mind is Banks because of the price for what you get.

WOW! You have some lofty goals!! The issue that guys seem to have with Banks stuff is just what you say AND not quite the performance that was advertised.....

Did you read the suggested upgrades thread. This will give a guideline for more power. Also read the gauge information for more info.

I've found around the 400-450 HP mark is a very safe HP range and easy to reach. But beyond that things get rather expensive and easy to break stuff...

DDP makes good injectors for the Bosch VP 44, I believe they now do internal engine stuff, and they are very particular to details, ATS is overpriced, decent products, but for a turbo you pay about an extra $500 for the purple, Banks is garbage because he trashes everyone else rather than saying something like so and so is good but here is why mine is better, not a class act in my opinion, Industrial Injection is kinda becoming one of the top dogs in the dodge cummins/turbo world goes, but personally, don't thnk you can make to many bad decisions
