750 on a g56 is very doable I have both a 08 and 2012 both are over 700 HP. you'll definately have to buy a clutch ,you'll also want a tuner with a 2010 I'd recommend MCC due to Efilive not being out for it. to have a better chance of keeping the head gasket it place you'll end up needing custom tuning. box tuners are to rough on timing/cylinder pressure. also the custom tuning will help keep the g56 intact also they can take a lot ,but not in certain areas you can limit custom tuning to keep from pushing it to hard in these areas

how do i custom tune? the truck comes with the mini max tuner 5 inch straight pipe all the deletes. do i need head studs? valuve springs? what twin set up would be best for the towing part? and is a clutch all i need for the tranny? and what about injectors? as you can tell im new to electronics all i know is plug the tuner in and set it on 1 2 3 or 4 on a duramax

If you have a minimax you just need to download MCC from h&s or talk to a custom tuner there's several folks that sell custom tuning. I personally use Lazarsmith's MCC tuning.

You will likely need injectors to get your goal, I don't personally run a set of twins on mine. I run a s475 single. I have friends that run s472 all day while towing without issue. the s472-75 can make over 800 HP with no issues. the head studs are a good idea ,but im still on my stock head bolts so far with custom tuning. MCC is built into your Mini max ,you can pull the stock tune out and look at it without having to pay H&S for the unlock code ,but when you go to install the custom tune on the truck its 200 dollars last I checked plus the cost of your custom tune from your tuner.

On the trans it all depends I run a torque shield and GJ lite transmission fluid and all as been well. I believe with custom tuning you wouldn't need the torque shield up to 650 HP. It is good for peace of mind though
