Upgraded my turbo
So my stock turbo went out on me and after looking around I went with the upgraded stock turbo (Garrett PowerMax GT3788VA).
I have a few things done to my truck they are just bolt on items which consist of air filter kit, CFM large mouth intake with aluminum tube, 4" tubro back straight piped, SCT TSX custom tunes from Innovative, and my FICM is tuned by Innovative as well. I also got custom tunes for the new turbo since they told me I would need them (Innovative).
After the install and new tunes loaded I was excited to test things out because from what I read it was a better turbo and would perform better.
My question is should I notice a difference in power? To me it seems the same or maybe a little less on the power side. Also the custom tunes don't seem to have as much of a gain. I even got custom tunes from MPT which were horrible tunes I tried to explain the problem with their tunes but they keep telling me to just re-load them to the tuner, which I told them that didn't work either... so I gave up with them and went back to the Innovative tunes.
2006 F250 CC SB FX4, 4" lift 35" NITTO's 22" KMC's, IDP tuned FICM, PowerMax GT3788VA, SCT LW TS w/ IDP & GH tunes, 4" MagnaFlow Turbo back straight piped, K&N Intake
