Turbo, Injector Advice and prices

Im selling my Travel trailer and would like to use the money towards the truck. I was looking at the VGT-SS, Stage 3 sticks, BTS TC, and ARP studs.
I'm new to the turbo and injector world. Is there anything out there that would be better then the Elite VGT-SS and stage 3 sticks. Also would the factory tranny be enough to handle that kinda power with just a TC? Also what do you think a setup like that with the mods in my sig would be able to make. Would a goal of 500whp and 850-1000TQ be with in reason. Like i said i dont know shat about the turbo and injector side of things. So anyhelp before i end up droping think kinda money on something that isnt worth it would be great. Oh and also would it be wise to go to a nonVGT turbo?

Why would you put a Banks on a 6.0L when it is no comparison to a SCT on a 6.0L in performance? Was it just personal choice or was there a specific reason?

Where is your egt probe located? The SCT can tune your tranny as well. It is fully custom tunable for whatever your needs are. There are many folks that tow with the SCT that have no problems at all and use nothing but the SCT when towing.
