Thinking of trying new things

Ok guys, I am going to be looking at trying some new things to make my truck much more tow friendly. Right now I am running 225's with a Silver Bullet 64 turbo. I want to know if you guys think it would be better and cheaper to move up to twins or buy everything to go back to stock. If I go to twins could I use my current turbo in the setup or not . If I go back to stock I plan to get 155's and a Garret Powermax turbo. Either way I need to get an EGR Delete and don't know what the best option is. Also I was looking at the Bully Dog Tuner if I go back to stock. Anyone have any experience with one of them? Please give me your opinions so that I can try to make a good informed decision. Thanks.

bully dog is the worst tuner for the 6.0 it would probably be cheaper to go back to stock as im sure there are members on here who would love to trade with you so you could probably do it for free.

A good setup to tow with but nothing stock about 155's and a PM. Btw, stay away from the Bullydog.

Well I guess I shouldn't have said stock. If I went completely bone stock would I have any problems towing a gooseneck with a crew cab long bed truck? I just want to have the power I need to tow anything I need to. With my current set up it just isn't very tow friendly. If anyone wants to trade pm me and we can discuss things.
