You say the turbo is a GT4088r but you want a bigger turbo?? Is the turbo stock or did you buy the truck already upgraded??


Pending your response; For a towing setup: A nice KC SG 1 maybe 2, with 155cc sticks, Airdog or other lift pump, maybe a fuel system. Of course the tuning might need to be tweaked for best results. Added "upgrades": Maybe a intake manifold, turbo back straight pipe, bellowed Y-pipes, maybe a inter-cooler.

Pretty much a perfect combo if you ask me (you about named all I've got)

I originally was towing with stock injectors and a stage II, utilizing Matt's tunes. The truck ran great but once I yanked the motor out for heads/studs I decided "let me spend more money I don't have LOL".

I added 175/30's, an ODAWG stage II and an airdogII and all the other goodies that it got when it was on a stand.

The tuning was tricky because gearhead had to change them to a full fuel tune and the damn truck was powerful and the egt's were uncontrollable. Gearhead tweaked the tunes here and there (both race and tow) and it runs flawless now.

While towing a pretty heavy weekend warrior, I am lucky to see 1300* sustained up a good size hill at around 2800-3200 rpm. Keep in mind I am straight piped and ridding the truck of the restrictive oven/catalytic converter helped a bunch

The ADII wiring harness IS A JOKE! If you plan on buying one, plan on redoing it with 8-10AWG (long positive and negative) as I found out the hard way and melted wires.

I am running a KC stage 1, Spearco intercooler, Airdog along with some other modifications. No matter what you do, getting a good tune is one of, if not the most important things you can do. I've seen people throw thousands and thousands of dollars at a project, but scrimp on a few hundred bucks for a custom tune. Never understood that.

With my current setup, which is pretty much what has been mentioned previously minus the injectors, I couldn't be happier driving street or towing.

let me be more specific the turbo is a turbo lab rebuild kit. includes new compressor housing and billet wheel 63.5mm. i bought the truck completely stock. but i want to go ahead and replace my injectors. i will be towing a 18 foot trailer with a zero turn lawn mower. i do have a heavy duty trailer for towing heavy equipment and or trucks but i rarely ever use it. i do not tow with it a lot. once or twice a month but i want it to be able to tow anything i hook to it. was curious about a 6.7 fuel pump. i happen to have one on stand by but is it worth the money to go ahead and buy a airdog or something similar.

It all depends on what you want. Some people talk about how the ADII has dependability issues, which I have seen first hand regarding the weak wiring harness. Others say that having a stock 6.7 pump will feed your system plenty well plus you have the available pump at any dealer if it goes bad. I have seen the rigors and parts sourcing of installing a 6.7 pump and it really seems like a huge PITA to do and expensive.

Both will serve you well and I can attest to the ADII having done so for me.

If I had to do it all over again, I would still do the ADII because I like the filtration and the preparator features it offers for the fuel delivery.

My opinion
