Looking at a TB, what are the in's and out's

I am looking to get a TB, i have been looking around the form for a while now and have seen a couple things to keep in mind but what do you guys think.

Are there any years or options to stay away from? I plan on pulling a couple snowmobiles one or twice a year, how does the I6 do on this? Or should i just go with the V8? Does any one make a aftermarket superchager kit for any of these?

Thanks for any inputs.

Lowest towing capacity with a 6 cylinder is 5100lbs. The V8 EXT can have up to 7200lbs towing. I tow a 23ft boat that weighs about 5300lbs dry without issue with my 05 TB EXT V8 with the tow package and 3.73 gears.

I think they do have a supercharger kit, depends on your engine choices.

Thanks for the info

How much power does the I6 give you. Does it feel like its enuff or does it feel lacking? I have a 400hp Bonneville, and don't want to loose that fun feeling. Yes i know it will not be as good as my Bonneville, but i want it to atleast feel powerfull.
