Define "light towing" and what do you mostly use your truck for. If its a daily driver/weekend warrior type I would also suggest the powermax. Non VGT singles suck on the street unless you want to put a lot of money, trial and error in to it.

did you do a search for this topic? this is getting repetitive there are at least three active topics right now on which turbo to get. just a pointer not an attack.

But powermax and 190s are still very streetable and you will have to fill us in on your definition of light towing as mentioned above.

They are modified powermax turbos. They started out as the powermax, so that is where they get the name. They tend to not last long. The 63.7mm is the original powermax

So they added the name powermax to their line up of semi reliable turbo's.
