Who Tows With 190s?

So I'm starting my injector fund, since I'll be sticking around where I'm at and have no emissions testing in my county I'm contemplating 190s with either 30% or 75% nozzles. I don't tow a lot, but I don't want to completely lose the diversity of my truck being able to tow and play. I do have a hybrid for the time bring. My fiancÚ is into horses so I see some towing I'm my future. I know most will say go with 155s or maybe 175, but just for curiosity sake who has 190s, what size nozzles, and how much have you towed with them?

I towed a small boat, 19', and had to keep an eye on my egts even with a very mild tune but if I had more turbo I would be better

Not to thread jack, but I've heard too many good things about your tunes here lately. I'm going to order one soon and try it out.

I'm sure tuning has a lot to do with it. I guess if I do this I'll get 190/75 and Tonys tow tune lol

Humboldt. I think Trinity, and maybe Mendocino are exempt also.
