what to do next?

I have all the base upgrades and now it is going to get alittle expensive, but what is the next step for towing performance. I'm sure this is a repeat questions, but most of you guys are trying to get as much racing performance as possible and i'm looking for good heavy towing upgrades for the motor that will not fry the tranny pulling 15k +. I have a 250 that i can play with, but this truck mostly pulls when it is rolling. I have in mind to put an adrenaline HPOP and injectors, is this the right route and if so, what size injector would be right for this application?

Has the trans been rebuilt? If not its next on the list before additional power is added. If it has then Stage 1's will get you 350Hp+- and better fuel MPG. Won't hurt the trans like larger inj's can. Turbo upgrade or housing swap, updated tunes and the new Stealth will wake your truck up. PM if I can help.

the trans has been rebuilt, haven't done the vb yet but did put the rv towing converter in it. i believe my hpop is weak with 400k on it, and my truck doesn't put out any smoke no matter what tune it is on, so i'm thinking the fueling may not be up to par which is why i was thinking of replacing the hpop and inj. If you wouldn't go that route then what would u do?
