Turbo,Injectors, and Tune Recommendations

Getting everything ready to start my F550 buildup.

05 550 4x4 Auto

Need to get some recommendations on the following parts?????

The truck is my DD and my tow rig for my Bobcats

Injectors? I've been reading about 155's. I don't have anyone picked out yet.

Turbo? Been looking into the Powermax or equivalent.

Tunes? Looking for a tune for tow, street/play, and maybe an economy.

Open to all feedback, been reading every thread I could dig up in my searches but want to hear from actual users.

Thanks in advance!!

Will

Does your truck have a toolbed and loaded with tools? If so then you might be best sticking with a custom tow tune rather than performance tune. I have a friend that drives a 550 with a crane and toolbed on it and he runs a tow tune because its so heavy and he really likes it.

Contact Adrian- Madpowerstroke, on here about a turbo.
Dude builds some crazy turbos.
From what I have seen, he supplied turbos for some nasty tow rigs.

Ive got stock injectors, and a MTW stage 2. I haul my mini excavator up and down the great state of delaware. Seriously its a tow monster. 70-80mph, flat grade, 1000deg egt's all day long. I leave a light with traffic and keep it under 2500 rpm, and around 22-26 psi of boost. I run innovatives tow tune, written for my stock turbo. I never got a tow tune for the turbo, just 1 performance tune. I run a lot of my old tunes with it and no issues. Ive never run a p-max but adrian has my vote. I plan on 190cc(most likely warren) and MTW stage 3 in the very near future. but won't be towing much with it then.

Awesome info, exactly the type of info I am looking for. Will be checking out MTW for sure! Been looking at his stuff today. 2200-2500 RPMs is a daily thing for me loaded or unloaded at 70, haven't ran it over 80. It's got 4.88's and 19.5's so it is screaming. My Bobcat excavator is over 9,000lbs, and my loader is around 7,000.
I will be checking out innovatives too, be to their web site.

It's going to be a LONG week of phone calls and ordering parts!!! Like that's a bad thing though... LoL.. Kinda like a second Christmas and one nice birthday present.
