How much do I need ?

Guess I should have asked the towing guys here first, I want to be able to easily pull 20-23k, with the dually, at first I was thinking around 400hp, is this high/low/correct, I don't want to over do and lose longivity, this truck is a keeper, thanks.

'97 3500 dually cc 4x4, bhaf, 4" down pipe to 5" exhaust, 100 plate, boost elbow, 4k gsk, timing bump, 60lb springs. Trans Go shift kit. Billet Converter. Isspro boost, pyro & trans temp gauges.

Depends on how you build it. If you don't cheap out on quality parts, and make sure you keep enough air for the fuel you have to keep things cool, you should be fine. Make sure you get gauges so you know when to back out of the throttle.
