Looking for advice

I just bought a 2004 F-250 with some mods on it. It has 225cc injectors, S&B Cold Air Intake, Silver Bullet 64 Turbo, SCT Tuner, and a single stack. I am wondering how hard it will be on the truck to drive it as a daily driver. I drive bout 20 min each way to work. I was wondering if there was any way I could use this to help on the farm pull a few things or would I have to go back to stock on some things. I know about keeping exhaust temps down but I am new to having this many mods on a truck. Hope you guys can help me out.

With 255cc injectors and that big of a turbo I don't think it would be a good daily driver. You will probably have some massive turbo lag. There are many many threads on here that say anything over 175cc is not good for towing. I personally don't know why but the majority of the people on here know what they are talking about.

2012 F250 Lariat CCSB FX4, Gooseneck and 5th wheel prep package, H&S Minimaxx, 5" AFE SS straight pipe, EGR delete with factory EGT sensor, 35" Toyo MT's on stock rims, and Bilstein 5160 shocks.

Chances are with those large injectors and only having one turbo. Pulling anything is going to be very risky. Your egts are going to be through the roof even if you want to pull a light load. As a daily driver it will be laggy but still very drivable.

So if I had a twin turbo set up would that help lower the egt? It also has everything set up for a snow performance kit but I don't know how much that would help or hurt me in the long run. I guess I don't really fully understand how the water injection works or affects the engine.
