600hp turbo help please

Alright guys im trying to break the 600hp mark, but i still want to be able to tow with my truck and drive it anywhere. So far I have studs, black onyx gaskets, coolant reserculation lines, egr delete, up pipe, air dog 2 150, 180mm rcd injectors, trust stage 2 fuel system, sct idp tunes, 58v ficm idp tuned, air intake, zoodad mod, 4" to 5" exhaust, spearco intercooler, and a BD transmission thats been built to handle 1000 hp. I just i also plan on ordering a cfm large mouth, snow meth injection,amsoil oil filter bypass, a locker for the rear and ladder bars. But i need help with my turbo choice the ones i have in mind are the powermax, rcd 64mm, rcd 66mm street, or the ssx elite diesel turbo, id like to make 600hp while still being able to tow and drive it anywhere, i am also open to buying a used turbo so if anyone has something let me know what you have.

66 will be laggy. id say 64 and look into bd diesel diverter valve to see if they can put it on the rcd 64. keep me updated how does your 180cc work. im thinking about upgrading. also look into gogo diesel stage 1 intake manifold

cant have it all..I will say that..if you are looking for 600hp and still be able to tow, plan a small turbo upgrade (62 or 64) and then some spray..thats about the only way its gonna happen IMO.

Id love to have that compound kit but theres no way i can spend 6grand on turbos i had a chance to get rcd 64mm last night for 900 but i just missed the bid on ebay. I was leanning toward that powermax or that rcd 64mm but that powermax is a grand cheaper, whats do you guys think about that powermax is it any good or should i spend that extra grand for the 64mm

You probably dont have enough injector honestly, your trans wont hold up either, powermax is good for the price I run it but 600 n towing your pushing the fine line to reach that. Your better off closer to 525-550 and be happy. Since you dont have alot of money to play with you definitly shouldnt think 600hp is easy or simple to do. Not trying to be rude but if you dont have the money to play dont go to much you'll pay later in repairs.

X 2. That gives you plenty of driveability, towability, and still able to get 600 when you need it.
