Towing Mods

I originally wasnt going to do turbo or injectors but after doing some r&r I am leaning that way. My E-99 PSD has 260,000 miles, 6sp, it is a WORK truck only, will not be drag racing, sledding, or other acts of stupidity (my brothers in mind). I want to get many more miles out of it with the least problems.

My questions:

How do the D66 turbos from Beans hold up to towing?

Reman or new injectors stage 2 (160 cc) from Beans?

Will my stock HPOP work with these upgrades? (Cost to upgrade?)

Once mods are done nothing else will be added, just want to improve towing capabilities. I will have intake, gauges, exhaust, and other goodies. Like I said looking to get many more reliable miles out of the PSD without grenading anything. Thanks.

well first thing i would do is clutch if you want more powa. i have herd good things about the 66 but never ran it. if your gonna get injectors and a turbo from beans you might as well just throw a beans chip in there

By E99 do you mean early or econoline as in van? If your an early 99 then single shots will flow fine even a later one will be ok. I have stage ones on my 01 f250 with a dp tuner intake and an exhaust.

That runs alot in my family, but Im a little more conservative! This truck makes my living. I feel sad for some of the that have been in my family.

Main thing is I dont want stuff to start crapping out on me in 50k miles.
