Sticks and Turbo

So, i'm really interested in upgrading sticks and my turbo. At first i was thinking the VGT-SS turbo with either 155's or 190's. But now i'm thinking a 64mm NON-VGT from RCD and some 155's or 190's.

My goals are 500rwhp. I just want to break that line, i'd be really happy with 530-550rwhp. I also need to be able to tow up to 12k lbs, i mostly tow between 3-6k, but sometimes 10-12k. so i dont want anything so aggressive i cant do that. What are everyon's oppinions on what i should do.

I wouldnt do more then 155 to 180's thats me, 190's are the max for daily driving which im running, im sucking fuel down but thats due to my tuning hehehe.

I agree that a 64MM or smaller fixed turbo with 190 or smaller injectors are the way north of 500 HP. You better save some money so you can dial in the tuning that's where you will get the numbers you are wanting to see.
