Runs fine with stock injectors. Just a touch more lag than stock charger, but a new tune fixed that.

Sounds like an '03 turbo

I think madpowerstroke(adrian) has come out with a 'durastroke' turbo that so far sounds like it is better than a powermax. I'd consider that route. I think this will bother vendors tho now that there is competition to the powermax and they could see their pmax sales drop. i dunno, jmo.

I am running a Powermax with stock injectors with a Aggtow tune and a Atlas 40 FICM tune from PHP, and its great, no lag.

However, I did notice my EGTs are hotter about 100-125 degrees driving around town and uphills (800-950) I am paranoid and always watching the stupid pryo!

I had some tune re-written and it just made it hotter around town.

Funny thing is even when I'm on it, once boost is up and I hit 1100 it basically stops climing. I hit 90mph pedal to the metal and couldnt hit 1200.

The whistle of the PM is a real head turner! I've had mine turbo on just over a week and I haven't listened to my radio

Other than the increased EGTs around town I am really liking the turbo.

The sound of the Powermax will definently deliver! I see you have a 5inch exhaust so it will scream.

At Idle I can bearly hear the whistle but 2lb of boost or more...fak..get the earplugs out, lol


Found this on youtube:

Kingranch250, if you are serious about getting a Powermax, I may be looking to sell mine. Has about 7 or 8k miles on it and already has a Batmowheel installed on it. I need to go bigger to work with my sticks. Shoot me a PM if you're interested.
