Getting a powermax, what else is needed?

So I got a hookup on a new powermax for $869 and couldn't pass that up...SOOOOO what else is there that I may need? For the time being, I just want to use it as a replacement for the stock turbo until I get studs, then I am going to get the truck tuned. My understanding is I can just drop it in and the truck will be just as reliable as the it was with the stock turbo correct?

And yes other than having a bit more power it will be similar to stock. It's impossible to say it will be just as reliable but odds are you'll be fine.

I wouldnt say that it will produce more power with a stock tune. If anything it might be and more than likely will be a little more laggy until you tune it and install some injectors.

Seeing as he has an edge CTS, I was assuming he will be running a tune. But yes you are correct. No tune and powermax= crap. With a good tune even on stock injectors a powermax is good for 50whp.
