Powermax???

To make a long story short I was cleaning my turbo yesterday and the unison ring is cracked and the turbo is pitted beyond belief. I was wondering if I could run a powermax with stock injectors and stock head bolts. If so where is the best place to buy these things? Thanks for the help. Dustin Ball

Yes you can. I run one on stock injectors and head bolts. Only about 500 miles so far. But to get the most out of it you're going to want a tune to take full advantage of it.

Can you tell a difference over the stock turbo? Im sure not like it would if I had injectors, but any improvements at all? I just dont want to buy another stock turbo and upgrade farther later and need to change it again. thanks for the help Dustin

Heck they run about the same as a replacement, more growth on the power side in terms of being able to throw bigger injectors in there. It is a win win. But on the other side you could pick up a used 03-07 turbo on here or craigslist way cheaper. I just got a stock 03 "the wistler" for 250 shipped to my house. I am going to spend about 200 rebuilding it and and 400 for the bantum wheel and call it good. Maybe in the summer or next year when I feel the need I will do a PMAX and injectors. Right now it is time to save money for another house while the market is low.

They are about $1000 from most of the vendors for just the turbo. Don't forget to pick up the updated oil fee and drain tubes as well as the gasket kits.

I like performancetruckproducts.com myself. They're a site sponsor and have great customer service. Plus they have the cheapest price from what I've seen.

You may feel more lag on take-off if you dont have any tuning. Mid-range on up it's a monster. While driving if I'm at 15PSI already and floor the pedal it just takes OFF!!

It's a significant increase over stock! Get the upgraded tunes as well.
