Towing with an RCD 66mm?

I am wondering how much I can tow with an RCD 66/180s; Just want to be able to pull a bass boat, or lightweight travel trailer (6500lbs wet). Trying to get close to 600hp on fuel alone and still be able to tow under 10,000lbs. I am willing to try meth/water to cool the EGT's down if that will help.

Thanks!

You might be ok...

What did RCD tell you?

Heat may be high, and boost real low...let us know how you make out.

RCD indicated that getting going might be a lil slow and a lil hot, but it might be ok...

I think its just a corner case and I may just have to try it out.

Better choice than the 66 to tow and you should still be able to hit mid 550's or so with good tuning. Just be advised that no decent sized non vgt will tow as well as the stock vgt that you're used to. There's no perfect solution for big HP and driveability/towing on a 6.0 unless you drop big money on compounds.
