The ATS Intake Housing is just to stop the turbo surge. It will add no power.
The ATS Exhaust Housing will lower my egts 100 - 200 degrees which I really need. No extra power
WW - Just a sound thing
Then I have a lot of other little things I am doing (in sig) that will not add power, but reliability.
Next will be a BTS tranny
In order to get more power your buddy really needs some sticks (injectors) the stock injectors are only good for about 80HP over stock.
If he did the intake and exhaust housing then his stock turbo should keep up with a set of stage 1 sticks.
If he really wants speed/power out of a 7.3 I would first make sure he has forged rods and not the PMRs. PMRs are only good for about 400 HP, so I am at a stopping point unless I do Stage 1 Sticks. So I am just making my truck bullet proof to make a million mile journey
