Injector question

Whats the biggest set of injectors I can go with and still be able to tow around 15,000 lbs. If I did this would I have to not run my Sct or can I get a bigger set of injectors and still run a tow tune with them and have egts be okay. Just wondering what my options are. I am looking to at least upgrade to a powermax turbo to go along with what ever injectors I got.

my friend had RCD 185's and towed heavy (skidsteers, backhoes etc) with them, he had tuning to hold back the fuel, all on a stock turbo.. I honestly wouldn't recommend anything higher than 155cc's for towing. Even at that i would still upgrade the turbo to say a powermax... lets hear from someone who has injectors and towns heavy.

If you tow that kind of weight regularly, I'd stay stock.

It depends on the trubo. powermax, 175 at the most. 155 is better.

For 15k I would stay stock. Powermax would be a nice upgrade tho. I tow 25k with stock sticks and a powermax and it gets the job done!

I wouldn't tow that very often at all. I would just like some bigger injectors and wondering how big to go but still be able to tow that. I still need to get my fuel system upgraded and powermax before I go anyfurther.
