powermax 65/71 and 190's

hey guys,
Making big plans for my new truck and wanting to go big and reliable. i have upgraded all the basic stuff like studs and egr but now im trying to decide on injectors and charger. its my first 6.0 so im kinda clueless. im wanting to run the powermax 65mm/71 and a set of warren 190's. rcd offers this kit but with 155's. i do tow a 20ft camper every now and then so i dont want to have high egts? also what size nozzles 75or 100?

IMO if you want a reliable street/strip combo the powermax is a great option. If you still want to tow without getting too hot I'd probably keep the injector size down to 175cc. Should still be a solid 500 rwhp setup with good tuning and with a good tow file the EGT's should be tolerable while towing. Make sure you include a fuel system in your parts list too. A fuel pressure gauge in cab is also a must.

The powermax is 63.7mm just FYI. I would put 75% nozzles on them. 100s will only make towing worse. I'm putting. 75s on a set of 225s that are going on a towing set up just for perspective.


Want something like this ^^^ PM me

+1 on not going with RCD!
They didn't honor their one year warranty I paid extra for. My set lasted 5000mi and bit the dust!

if you tow that heavy I woud do 175/100's or 190/75's

if you dont want a vgt anymore a 62/65/70 non vgt would be a great turbo too...

Better top end with the S3, better spool up with a VGT. From personal experience I'd stick with a VGT.

vgt would still be your best bet IMO. the powermax was redesigned so that you dont have to worry about the vaines sticking anymore
