210 vs 275

Just trying to figure out what is the best set up. I recently purchase a CAI, 4" all the way back exhuast and some tunes from Spartan. So here is my question? I have the 210 and the 275 which is best for a daily driver and I tow a 18'8" bass boat which ways about 3700 about 3 days a week. I live on the border of AZ and Mexico so the weather is hot 3 months out of the year. The other 9 months is ok.

Future upgrades is a Water / Meth system

What do you guys recommend...

275 as a daily driver and pulls great, just watch your gauges!

Like stated above, you can tow with the 275 tune as long as your smart and keep your EGT's in check. I would reccommend with the fact that your towing a boat, use the 210 tune or a lower tune of your choice, but a lot of guys tow with the 275. It only takes 15 mins to load a tune. Just load a lower tune while your preparing to go to the lake if your worried about pulling with the 275

I regularly pull 10-12K with the 310...
I don't think I would worry about a bass boat.
