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

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..

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??
