Upgrading

So i am throwing about $10,000 in to my engine and decided i want to get 155cc injectors in to my motor and trying to bullet proof my engine as much as possible but i was wondering what turbo i should get i am looking for the best economy but still a little performance boost as when when i get in to it any suggestions and other then (head studs, egr delete, fuel system upgrade, high pressure oil pump, aluminum water pump, titanium turbo bolts, blow off valve and a good custom tune) what should i get done. I want to have my truck last the longest that it can and get better mpgs is my goal. I have a banks intercooler and a afe stage 2 intake and straight pipes already. Thanks in advance

The Garrett Powermax is a great fit for your plans. A lot of people run it and it has a good reputation. It is a direct drop-in replacement which makes it convenient as well.

We carry them if you are interested. You can check it out HERE.

Let me know if you have any questions.

I know you said you want a turbo but the more power you throw at a motor, the quicker it's going to wear out. If your wanting it to last as long as possible then you might think about just doing some bulletproofing and not throwing a big tune on it. Of course that's not much fun but most motors that are known for lasting forever are generally low horsepower and low rpm motors.

I don't know who is selling you this but they wouldn't get $.02 of my money. A BOV is NOT needed on these trucks. Now if this is some sort of full on race truck/sled dog/tow monster then do what you can afford.

Before I bought a turbo I'd consider a cam and a ported intake manifold.
