Ultimate tow upgrades

Just curious what your guy ideas are on upgrade for towing. I tow a 28' camping trailer(7900lbs) and a quad in the back(600lbs). I think I have an injector I'm going have to replace so I'm not sure if I should go to 155's or keep stock and upgrade turbo or maybe go with IDP compound set up and what else will I have to upgrade. I tow the trailer every 4 day in the Sumer. What do you think?
Thanks

8-hole 155cc Innovative Injectors, AirDog 2 (along with the upgraded FPR kit and 6.4 banjo bolts), PowerMax Turbo, and an aFe Stage 2.

Also, you definitely need gauges (EOT, ECT, EGT, Fuel Pressure at the least) and an SCT w/ custom tunes if you don't already.

I did do the banjo bolts when I did my head stud forgot to ads them sig. I should have done some more reading on here and did the FPR while I was at it. Is the air dog 2 some thing that should be done first. I was looking at the fuel pressure for sure was on I was going to get.I have the egt all ready

compounds are ridiculously expensive.... unrealistic.... i tow a 40' hauler all the time average 16k... once off warranty im building what i believe will be the ultimate tow machine.... as seen in sig.

the op said he was considering compounds, Thats why I recommended it. If I was building the ULTIMATE (key word here) tow rig thats what it would be.

So with the 225s, will the compounds help keep the EGTs down? With a single, I know 225s would be waaaaaay too much for towing heavy.

Crazy. I'm assuming his EGT probe is hooked up to the exhaust manifold...
