It will be a difference of like going from crappy canned tunes to custom tunes... it will be felt


But, doesn't she tow with it???
I wouldn't get anything bigger then 175/30's to be able to tow without issues and not have to install a custom fuel system like you will for those 190s

Sometimes. But we have my 7.3.

So 190's are too big for a stock fuel system?

Isn't the Powermax only a marginal improvement over stock? Also, isn't it true that you need a program written for larger injectors so it doesn't smoke like a freight train?

Yes and yes, I just talked to tony wildman, and the 190/30's will perform just fine with a stock fuel system

Yes they are, even my 175/75s are pushing the limit. and i'm having a fun time towing with them right now with 1300*+.... I would be more omfortable with 30% nozzles.

Correct it is not that much of an improvement i've heard... for 175 or larger injectors you really need a Hybrid with billet wheel or a stage 3 turbo from mad turbo werks.

Yes you need a custom tune written for larger injectors. I believe 155/ stock and 175/sotck nozzles you can still run on a stock tune though.

With a GOOD stock fuel system... It would also be VERY beneficial to atleast get a R.R. on that truck at that point.

He is running 190/75's with no issues.

Yes, beneficial. Especially since I'll have the heads off.

Just do a regulated return, and you should be fine, as long as the stock pump is healthy. My truck had 185/70s with just a regulated return for a while and never dropped fuel pressure at all.
