turbo: garrett powermax cant go wrong with that. its on xtremediesel.com is the cheapest. injectors you can send off to industrial injection and have them make yours into 155cc or 175cc for cheap. tuner: i would go with a custom tuned sct. exhaust: 5" mbrp turbo back off ebay is the cheapest. intake is kinda up to you the stock one is good but aftermarket always looks good under the hood. also if doing injectors you need to run a regulated return and ITP i think is the best. and as far as the fuel pump i would run an airdog II they are super easy to set up. hope some of that helps. most of all tho make sure you do the studs for sure

For $12,000 I'd put a 12V Cummins in it with a built trans, big torque converter and billet flyweel, it'll pull that 45 ft trailer all day long.

i had a cummins and i really like my 6.0 wayyyy better, and believe it or not i was a die hard dodge/ cummins guy till i got in my first 6.0... everyone knocks the 6.0 but the cummins don't have good trans or front ends.. the duramax's i have seen (buddies of mine) are pieces of junk mabye its them idk.. plus if he keeps the engine the truck came with theirs none of having to try and mix and match the parts.

head studs and an egr delete and the green stuff you got a strong runner... my .02
