wanting to upgrade my turbo.. Advice please

i have a 2007 6.0 and im looking to get a little more power out of it so i want to swap my turbo. i already have the usual performance mods... the truck is my daily driver so i want it to be streetable still and im looking to stay with my stok injectors. Any advice on a turbo upgrade?? i was thinking of going with either the garrett powermax or the one from
industrial injection part #60FORDHY

Thanks for the advice in advance!

What are your mods? How many miles are on your truck?

The powermax will be laggy with stock injectors and stock tunning.

Elites vgt-sr is a slightly smaller turbo and it will spool faster and give you the power increase and egt temp drop. Although it is more expensive than the powermax.

$1,189
Garrett PowerMax GT3788VA Turbo Kit

With their 10% sale that ends tomorrow, the turbo will be $1,070 and free shipping

unless you are planning to upgrade injectors there really is not much need to change the turbo. I would put in a set of 155 cc injectors and stay with the stock turbo. what makes you want a different turbo?

He might just want to clean up a bit more smoke and have a turbo that screams (he has an 07).

yeah I figured that. I have tried a few different setups and seems that the best one for stick injectors is the stock turbo. powermax is good I hear. that will probably be the next one in my truck with 190s but if you want to get a bigger turbo you really need more fuel to make it worthwhile

I have the powermax on 2 trucks ran it with stock injectors on both of them never once have I had any problems with being laggy. It requirers tune changes to fix some of it.


Want something like this ^^^ PM me
06 F-250 project "Overbudget" in progress. best of 12.4@107
05 6.0 Ranger (deranged) best of 11.0@124 fuel only
