I have a190s with a powermax. It is not enough turbo for the injectors. The truck starts and runs just fine, but it is hot and smokey. mpgs are pretty much the same.

I'm going with Full Force 190/75's to run with my PowerMax now... I'll let you know how it runs.

The best injector for the Powermax would be Jesse Warren's stock+ which flow about 153cc. The Powermax is not a very big step over the stock turbo and you will have to dial 190's so far back you are totally wasting the injector. I have 175's and even dialed way back it is smokey and hot.

I guess it all depends on how you look at the power you create with various mods. IMO, if one is going to go with a Powermax, they simply are gaining anything by using Injectors that are 175cc and larger. Sure you might squeeze out a few extra ponies but it isnt like you can sustain that power level like you could if you went with some 155/30s. I highly recommend properly matching your injectors with the turbo you intend to run for a while. If you are planning to use the PM as a stepping stone to a larger turbo setup down the road and need to buy something because your stocker took a dump on you, then fine but buying to run indefinitely and use with anything from 175/75 and above injectors is just wasting fuel IMO. I have 190/100s that I am using with a modded LBZ turbo and it is just too much fuel, but I plan to go to a larger turbo setup here in a few months so that is why I say it is all about what you plan to do. Hope this helps.
