Time to upgrade need help

I think i have a bad head gasket on my 99 and want to upgrade just not sure what to do. I use the truck mostly to pull a trailer 10,000 to 12,000 lb. I want to do injectors and turbo upgrade. I'm going to put head studs in when I do the head gasket. New up pipes. Would I be better going with stage 1 or 2 injectors? Would it be easier to pull the engine to do the head geaskets. I'm leaning towards a Gpt38r turbo. And getting a DP or tony wildman chip. Any other suggestions or better ideas. Also getting rid of the stacks and going with 4 or 5" stainless exhaust. Thanks

With the turbo go with Stg. 1's. With Stg 2's to keep them down on smoke for street driving they will end up feeling like stg 1's. Put the extra 200.00 towards something else.
