Default 400hp Goal+Towing

hey guys. i am looking to get around 400hp and 800fpt. Now that my car is finished, the truck sits in the garage and is only used for towing which is around 5 or 6 times a month. I want to be able to make my goal hp but still be able to tow ( around 12,000 pounds) without my egt's going crazy. the two mods i plan on doing are
-Raptor 100 (FRRP)
-100hp injector nozzles

including the mods i already have, will i be close to the 400hp range and will i be safe to tow?

I would think about getting a different tuner like an Edge Comp. Those nozzles are going to be hot with a stock turbo.

well i dont think hes gonna have to worry about governor springs on a 24v but for towing i like the smarty it gives you a lot of low end power just my op but i would think about a slightly larger charger and maybe depending on how built your tranny is like a lock up switch is nice when your towing a boost elbow and do you have cai or just a regular intake? ow and if your worried about egt's snow makes a really nice water meth tow setup cools er right off
