How to get an additional 15-30hp out of my 6.0

Hello everyone. Im new to the forum and looking for some input. I currently own a 2005 non studded 6.0 powerstroke. Current mods include SCT tuner, 3.5 downpipe to 4inch exhaust and factory intake w zoodad mod. The truck runs hard but im looking to squeeze another 15-30 more hp without having to break my wallet. I have heard that the combo of a blue spring, banjo bolts, a fuel system, and egr delete may do the trick? All suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

None of those mods really add horsepower. Look into getting a FICM tune

Does an egr delete really gain hp? I guess it would be from the cooler exhaust gases correct?

FICM tuning hands down is the way to go.
