Will this get me close to high 12's on fuel alone?

I'm looking to get into high 12's on fuel alone with my truck and need some input from someone who's already been there. I'll be adding Elite's VGT-SS turbo, 190cc Casserly injectors, ARP head studs, Fass 150/180 (full fuel system), CFM+ Largemouth intake elbow to go along with my Spearco intercooler, and 4.10's to get me back to my stock gear ratio with my 34's. Will this be enough to get into the high 12's. Some vendors say yes some say no but I would like to ask the people on this forum who has already experienced what it takes. I also didn't want to go with bigger injectors due to the fact I'll be towing a 7000 pound boat during summer. If needed I'll add a water methanol system to keep EGT's down but I'm hoping to avoid that (that's why I went with 190's). Thanks for the input.

Also I will have my truck dynoed before and after on a Dynojet to post actual gains with modifications. I'm hoping for 525-545 rwhp. I'm also considering having my tranny built by either JW or BTS or purchasing all parts needed and have it locally built. Opinions on this will also be appreciated.

I'm posting this thread on a couple of forums try to get as much input as possilbe. I guess you could call me a forum who#@...LOL - is it okay to say that word?
