Check this turbo out:

Shouldn't affect your chip. Might be able to write you a different one to work slightly better with the turbo but you'd be fine with the ones you have.

If you are running stock sticks, keep the stock charger. The stock charger is very well suited for the stock injector size and upgrading the charger with stock sticks usually means giving up something.

Take that money you were going to spend and upgrade your injectors. As long as you have the fuel to support the injectors, that will be a much better deal for you.



Being that you tow a bobcat occasionally, I probably wouldn't go over a 62mm compressor. So, you don't need big injectors. Something in the 155 to 175 range would be good for a 62.

You're going to need a fuel pump if you plan on upgrading injectors... AD2 would be my vote. 155's and a 62mm would be a good combo if you're still planning on towing.

definetly upgrade your fuel system, if you go with bigger sticks you need to get more fuel to the motor (airdog, fass ect.)
