Turbo decisions

Im currently running a powermax with Casserly 190/75s. I'm happy with the amount of power my truck pumps out, but Im always looking for improvement. I'd like to see quicker spool-up mainly, and a egt drop wouldn't hurt.

I know the stage 2 from mtw would be my best bet, but is there any other options I'm not aware of? Are there any mods that can be done to my Pmax to give me similar results? Or should I just bite the bullet and go stage 2.

You could send your pmax to RCD and have them make it into a 68mm, I think it's around $1000-1200. I'd have to check my old emails.

Edit: It would be $1000 plus $25 for return shipping. You'd have to call them for more info.

That's not too bad, any experience with the rcd 68mm vs regular Pmax?

Not personally. Lance (Stroke of Luck) ran one for a while with 190/100s and he liked it. I think he picked up around 50 hp based on track times.

I think the RCD 68mm pmax falls in between the MTW stage 2 and MTW Stage 3 performance wise.

That sounds like what I'm looking for. I pmed Adrian to see if he could possibly mod my Pmax. If he can't I'll most likely send it to rcd.

Moto, did you decide on a new turbo? Curious where you're headed. I'm planning on getting a mad hybrid, but they're waiting on parts, I've considered the powermax also since its been around and proven and the tuners seem to have it dialed. On the other hand I think I'm looking for a little more than what the powermax has to offer.
