Depending on what your goals would be for the truck would tell you if stock injectors would be fine. If you are looking for a stock replacement turbo until you can get injectors because your turbo has failed then yea it would be fine. Just have a tune written for it and it will be just as good as stock. I wouldnt expect a power increase per say but would expect a drop in EGTs. Hope this helps.

On stock injectors? yes. But if your system is in good shape.
Meaning that your fuel psi is between 70psi and 50psi at ALL times.
If you get a tune written for the turbo, it will have a more aggressive throttle to make the tubo more responsive. But you can get a tune how ever you want.

well I have seen were others has gained power from a Powermax and went quicker in the 1/4 with the powermax.. I'm just wondeirng if one felt like keeping stock injectors for awhile would a powermax and a batmowheel be too much?

I see alot of guys have stock fuel with a powermax but adding the batmowheel I have not seen

It hasn't been tried and tested enough to tell, the only way to find out is to just do it.

And for the record the batmowheel will help aid in faster spool up so it will work better than an out of the box powermax with stock sticks. food for thought

What do you mean by "be too much"? Do you mean that the turbo wouldnt be getting spooled quickly enough due to lack of fuel? Or do you mean/think that you would see a huge power increase from adding the turbo but keeping stock injectors?

I dont think there really is such a thing as too much air. What you would run into with too big of a turbo and not enough fuel (in a general sense of course) is the ability to get it to spool to make it suitable for street or towing applications. With that being said and as already mentioned the powermax with a batmowheel would only need a tune written for it to help with spool up to make it feel as quick as your stock turbo. The only performance that I see you getting out of it is that your EGTs should drop which would in theory allow you to tow more with it on a higher setting.
