I'd suggest you start with a RCD 62mm non-vgt and 190's. Get with ID first and discuss the tuning before you buy to ensure that combo will support your daily driving/towing as well as the "racing".

Don't forget studs, regulated return fuel system and an EGR delete of some sort to support the new power.

190's might be a bit large if you plan on towing heavy frequently. I guess it depends who's injectors you're using. I'm going to try a 64mm and 150's. If I find that its too laggy I'll switch to the 62mm.

i agree with you josh at RCD suggest that combo with a truck that wants to keep the drivabilty and towing abilities and suggest that should be a good combo and yet still get the added power your looking for!

Thats what I'm hoping for. I won't be the king at the dragstrip, but it should be fun to drive.

Here is another vote for the 150mm^3 injectors and the 64mm turbo, which is the setup I use for hauling horses and the occasional romp down the ole driveway.

The injectors I got from Casserly, the turbo from Josh and the tuning from Matt(I lucked out, most 6.0 guys aren't going to be so lucky for awhile, so you'll need to go to Eric to get your tunes).
