The PowerMax turbo is an excellent upgrade. Power is increased some, but the biggest difference is cooler EGTs. We have customers running this turbo on stock trucks and customers running it on 550+ HP trucks, all of which are very happy with it. Here is a link to the compressor MAP. If theres anything I can help with, please let me know.

I just put one on my truck and it runs GREAT.
The power is much better and my EGT's are down.
My EGT temps on a long uphill on ramp used to climb up to 1500*+ and now I can't get them above 1250*
It is a very nice upgrade.
Now this is also on a 12,000 lbs truck.
