Default Power without losing tow ability

I was wondering what upgrades or mods I can do to get the most hp possible but not lose my ability to tow. In other words I wanna smoke bumblebee cars but still tow all the quads to camp. I saw some turbos and superchargers but not sure if they affect the ability to tow trailers. Any suggestions?

More power would only make towing easier.

Superchargers and turbo's will not affect towing in the negative aspect at all. So add to your wallet's limit. However, do not discount axle gearing as a powerful bump for both towing and acceleration times. Gearing is overlooked far too often for it's many benefits, especially for 1/4 mile times and towing capability which you seem interested in both.
