With your mods I think you need more air than a stocker jmo.....how you get there is up to you

My MTW stage 2 works good and I've heard Adrian is pushing them even better now with a wheel change. Kinda expensive though....

Since you have 175's I'd say your trans is on borrowed time anyway. Unless you don't hot rod it very often. Only the stage 2 will clean up those injectors.

Just FYI MTW might start selling the stage 2 again but as of right now it is not available. I also think the stage 1 is pretty small for your application... but you have been running the stocker so you would be the best judge of that.

I see you have 4.56 gears which will definitely help... but I would be worried about getting too big of a turbo and lug the motor a little too much... so the stage 3 might be too big... but I am running a stage 3 with 175s and it is a great combo.

Yep, if stock injectors... A stage 1 or hybrid would be great. I've got stock injectors, stage 2 turbo, and I live at 4000 ft elevation.
