03 6.0 powersgtroke with a garrett powermax vgt

Ok guys, this is my tow rig. It has head studs, air intake, egr delete, oil bypass, exhaust and tunes from eric at innovative. it tows 80% of the time. The spool up is really bad compared to stock turbo and injectors. Sometimes it falls on it's face and sometimes it'll get going. It seems to run best on extreme so I am thinking I need injectorsm then new programming. Will any injector get it back to stock spoolup or better? I was thinking 155's- 190's...I would prefer to keep the smoke to a minimum and it tows loads up to 20k lbs. anhy help would be appreciated....I am also doing a fass so it gets enough fuel...

If your towing 20k serious dont even bother with anything bigger then 155 your asking for some temps. Your towing with an extreme file seriously your kidding right ???? Did you update your tunes ? have you talked to Eric what your setup was ?

You need a tune specifically for the Powermax, and you need a tune for your daily needs. Talk to Eric.

If I were towing 20k regularly, I would run stock sticks...

155 will spool that turbo and give you more power. 190 will smoke too much and will run allot hotter than 155.
