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

I would recomend you talk to Adrian from Mad Turbo Werks and he can help you decide based on what your goals are on the right turbo for you. His name here is "madpowerstroke" send him a PM he is a stand up guy with the best possible customer service he also has a website or you can call.

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.
