Thinking about a turbo upgrade

Been reading a lot about bigger turbos and I think I now want one. Im sold on the idea mtw is where to go but what I want to know is should I go hybird or stage 2 im still on a stock fuel system or what do I need to upgrade before I upgrade my turbo. My truck is multi use towing for work and also my pleasure truck

I would reccomend the hybrid. I say this becuase you will not see a huge increase wgoing with the stage 2, they hybrid has the billet wheel standard, and the lead time on the stage 2 is long as garrett has parts for it backordered.

I'll second the Hybrid. It is a nasty little turbo. I've never had a Powermax to compare to but I've seen a couple guys on here go from a P'max to MTW turbo and they had good things to say about MTW.

The Powermax isn't all that big an upgrade.
