I don't think those big chargers tow well. I could be wrong but I thought I've read that on here before.

I dont get why the big charges cant tow but can pull sleds. I am trying to learn more on turbos..I am leaning more towards the 480with a 83mm wheel with a .9 a/r.. I think it will spool well with my stage2 heads, bore and, stroke...Any help? or ideas?
I plan on twining it winter. But if it can get 1000+hp I my wait till i need to freshen up the lower end..
