Whats next? Turbo or injectors?

Alright, well ever so slowly my truck is coming togeather. The goal in my build is to increase power and towing performance, while keeping the truck reliable for a long time to come. So my question is which route should I go next....I currently have 286,500 miles and over 130,000 on the VP in the truck.

My current "performance" Mods are:

-Raptor 150
-1/2in lines from tank to filter & from filter to IP
-Edge Comp
-BHAF
-4 in turbo back
-Built Trans
-Gauges:Trans temp, boost, pyro, fuel pressure

...I think thats all...
And I have replaced just about every other moving part on the darn truck in the last 2 or 3 years, so it is pretty solid.
I was told by one person that a turbo should be my next investment, as I can fuel enough with the stock injectors as is, and injectors before turbo would just lead to hot exh. temps. I get the logic, and that seems right I suppose, but I wanted to pose the question to you all, who have been in this spot before. And what product recomendations do you have as well?

My truck wants to be a semi when it grows up...

How big of sticks do you want? The stock turbo can deffinitly take some injectors for awhile if your going to go with a turbo, and EGTs wont be that bad depending on how you drive it...

I dont really know. Now that I have a good lift pump, i suppose I'm not to scared about adding injectors...Probably 100hp or under. I want a 500,000 mile truck.

Id prolly throw some DDP 125s in there personally...I mean i've seen stock turbos take A LOT more and be fine...

what year truck? I would not go over 75hp sticks with the stock turbo if your going to be doing some towing. I know a few people with 110's in their trucks and stock turbo they can't tow all that great. when I had rv275's in my truck it ran great with the stocker and i know it could of handled some more but I wouldn't go too wild unless your planning on a turbo too. Just don't be like me and go through 4 sets of injectors, etc and then figure out what you want to do with it.

01 quad cab 4x4, edge drag comp, 4" exhaust, fass 150, 250 ddps, Jefferson State compounds 683hp so vp 11.91. AMSOIL front to rear. now back to stock 95 fummins in the works

I don't know how they do it. or maybe my egt gauge reads too sensitive. I could get pretty warm with 110's and my 62. box turned down and even with box off
