stay with 6.0 and mod or move up?!?! HELP

Hey guys Just got my truck paid off and saved up enough to get some serious mods done, but wanted to ask and see if I should stay or move to a newer year model..
I have a 06 F250 studded, deleted, SCT-3 with innovative tunes, S&B, zoodad, and 4''exhaust. I usually pull a load on the weekends someones to different states with about 16,000 lbs on it. I want to stilll be able to pull, but blow the doors off something. Here is what I was thinking.

Option 1- Go with empire procharger setup on the 71MM turbo for sale in the for sale section, add an airdog 2, some 190 or 225's, Hpop and Snowperformance water/meth. anyone know what kinda power I could be seeing out of this setup? Towing capabilites?

Option 2- sell mine and Get a 6.4 or a 6.7 and do basics (programmer, intake, exhaust) to it ...... Again just curious as to what ya'll think? Thanks for the help

If anyone has a better idea for a setup I am all ears... jus wanting to get alot more power..lol looking with about $8,000 to play with

Id say stick with the 6.0. Its paid for and the 6.4 truck are nice and very powerful with tuning. But Im sure no payments would be nice to not worry about. Thats a nice truck in your avatar, Id run the wheels off of it.

2006 F-250 CC SB 4X4, all stock with egr system for now.

6.4's have a list of to do's also you would be starting all over
the 6.7 look good so far but are $$$ and still may have unknown problems
plus your not going to do much modding on those while under warranty

Stick with the 6.0, if its problem free and payed of then why get rid of it if you still like it. Plus you got all the basic supporting mods done already. IMO with the money you have to spend I'd do a powermax, 155s or 190s a fuel system with trans. That's an easy 500 horses that can work or play. Its an expensive road and in all honesty 8k really isn't a whole lot to work with
