I really like my 64 mm turbo that I got from River City. I would imagine a 64-66mm would be alright for towing, any higher you'll run into some surging issues that may or may not be alleviated by tuning.

Before I'd feel comfortable answering that question, I would like to know what you have already done to the truck for performance mods, and what are your goals for the truck? There are some pretty good turbo options in both the aftermarket VGT's and the non VGT's.

Street and towing I would imagine would be his goals since he was asking about a turbo for those applications.

That you'll have to get rid of. It won't be able to compensate for a turbo, particularly a bigger turbo that may be non-vgt, you'll have to be able to shut off the sensor for the vgt.

On my truck, I removed the sensor off my vgt, plugged it in and zip tied it out of the way. No codes and no troubles, just FYI.

To the OP, you really will need a custom tuned SCT to make the most of a turbo upgrade, but IMO you need to invest in other things before you need to worry about a turbo, but that's up to you. I think your stock VGT is more than up to the task for no more than you have done right now. Work on the supporting mods, such as fuel system, etc. before you worry about a turbo is my advise. That is unless of course your stock turbo is in need of replacement anyway.

5 minutes on a computer program is all I needed. I would imagine it took you a little longer for that.

I'd personally buy a used Xcal2 or new Xcal3 with custom tunes and a set of analog gauges. The hand held's can run the same tunes as the livewire.
