Turbo question

I'll try to keep this short and sweet. I have a 05 with 200,000 miles roughly. Just did the delete and studs and updates, etc. Straight pipe, sct with looney wild for a every day drive tune. I want some more power. Kind of like a street rod sleeper. I'm about to do a bigger leveling kit with toyo Mt 35's when I need tires so this is a every day driver. I hardly ever tow and if I do it's seriously four wheelers and small stuff. I am wanting to try and keep it under 550 though. I don't want to blow my trans if I don't have to. I take good care of this too. I am wanting to do a turbo. Later on I will change to 155 or 175's. I'm trying to keep it around 1300 max on price. I have a brand new in the box stock turbo I'm debating on sending to mtw for a tweaked stage 1. Or I could go pmax and I'm sure there are others. I need real world experience on turbos. What works. What don't. What makes a big difference. What don't. Etc. I plan on trying new tunes with the upgraded turbo FYI. Thanks in advance.

I have the MTW S1 on 155s and its a fantastic work truck tow rig setup but not exactly a "street rod sleeper" (your words). If you never use your truck as intended (your not alone) and you want a street rod, I would go with a bigger turbo, bigger injectors too.

Really..... Well that kind of sucks. Maybe I worded that wrong too. I know I've seen where people with a tweaked stage one with injectors were making like 550 ish on the dyno and that's about max for me. I want good street manors and as much as I love turning a wrench, I'm not wanting to have to all the time. Still looking for that good every day driver.... But want to blow the doors off a mustang or camaro when I feel like it. Lol

I would get a powermax then sell your factory turbo and by a billet wheel it will be a noticeable gain and egts will be very easy to manage. Get injectors later maybe 175/30's and it will be fun and still able to work. jmo. stock turbo and bigger sticks will be a little more warm plus injectors shouldn't be a budget item imo, I wish I would have spent more on casserly's.

Really? I can't really tell on my cell phone but are those warren injectors that you have? Why do you wish you would have went another route? Not trying to change directions here at all but I'm wondering because I was going with those when I do them. Thanks for the advice also.
Also what type of wheel?

the billet single plane wheel would be the better wheel to go with don't waste your money on the batmowheel. I have just had to replace a couple within the warranty period and I have to replace a couple more outside of warranty I have 10k on them in 1.5 years and I am very good on maintenance. I would get built from new over built from cores, or at least if they are built from cores they need to be flow benched imo, rcd does this with their core build injectors. Just speaking from my experiences.

Learn from me, Contact Warren get 175/30's and a Hybrid, run just about anyone's tune with that setup and your wife or GF can drive it like it's stock and you can ligth 'em up from 25 mph if and when you want.

GUARANTEED!

Have adrian build you a hybrid or MadMax trade in both your turbos as cores even up and be done with it. 80 $ for a blue spring and you won't have to mess with RR, FASS Air Dog any of that stuff and your tranny will love you long time if you run an SCT and Eric's or Matt's Tunes.

First off..... What's a madmax? I have the blue spring upgrade so check lol. I have the sct so check. I have read so much stuff that's questionable on the hybrid and it makes me scared lol. Btw on the used core.... My other turbo is a brand new in the box never used garrett stocker.
