I'm back! And looking for answers

Well I'm back after 3 months in the hospital from a car crash!. Sure missed my truck and seen there is tons to catch up on! First question looking at Adrian's turbos and wondering would a stage 2 be a good daily driver on stock fuel and sticks.

Thanks all
Dylan

I just have to say this....
Glad you're back.
But.. it is just funny to see a guy back from the hospital after a car crash, where the first thing he's asking about is how to make his truck faster.


Good Luck !

Yes a Stage 2 is GREAT for DDing with stock injectors. Spool up is really good with this turbo. It is about as fast as stock but you have to have a tune to get it that fast. You can't get stock response with stock tuning. You can get stock response with a stock turbo performance tune though.

Glad you're feeling better.

I did 485rwhp on PHP's dyno on a 80* humid day on stock fuel and injectors. The turbo had more in it, but the tuning just hadn't been figured out yet. The Hybrid I'm running now feels stronger and faster with the new tuning. I would also recommend a FICM tune to assist in spool up. If you have any questions let me know, but if you're plans are to stay with stock injectors, the Hybrid is the way to go. It will support up to around 175's too.
