Why would you want to upgrade it under these circumstances?

If your not pulling AND your going to keep your stock injectors, throwing a grand or more away isn't going to do that MUCH good

But you said that you're keepin stock injectors..
So by the time you get the new turbo on, you'll be installing injectors?? soooo??

Once you swap injectors, you're going to want to change your turbo set-up or you're gunna be
pooping smoke all over the place most likely.. Especially if you get the stage 2s.
So to me, it makes sense to get the turbo for a set-up with aftermarket injectors..

I do plan on that I said I want to purchase the turbo first and then I'm going to purchase the injectors about a month after I'm just waiting on the funds for the injectors

You're stock turbo should be good with stage1s..
And if you go stage2s then you're going to have to get a turbo and oil system upgrades..
So your cost ratio for stage1 vs. stage2 is about 1:3..
lol

To answer the original question since the thread went off the reservation...

Garrett powermax over the elite turbo any day. Powermax is a brand new factory modified unit. The VGT-SR is a stock sized replacement turbo that is remanufactured.

I take 50% responsibility of that.
lol. I just figured why get a turbo for an engine with stock injectors when you're
going to upgrade soon??
