Simple 6.0 build

I have been reading around the forums for a while now, but I cant seem to make up my mind, so any insight would be great! I've got an 05 6.0, fully reman motor with about 6k miles on it, ARP studs, egr delete, turbo back st8 pipe, coolant filter, Banks intake elbow and cold air intake, and its bored over just a tad. my goal is around 425-475hp, for the sake of the trany. As for future mods, I will be ordering the cts insight monitor, sct with custom tunes from gearhead most likely, and possibly some of the updates like the blue spring kit, dummy plugs, ect.. I rarely tow, and if I do, it would just be a couple fourwheelers for the deerlease. I mainly just want a fun/reliable dd. I'm kind of stuck on upgrading my turbo, I kind of like the idea of a non vgt, but I don't want to stray away from stock injectors. would this be possible with some good tuning? I like the actual exhaust sound over the turbo whistle, but then again I do like sounding like a jet cruising down the road. Also is a 58v FICM with atlas 40 or 80 a good idea? or no? Any suggestions on other mods would be great, I just want whats necessary.

With a performance tune on sct you hit 425 all day long. Before you replace your parts like your ficm make sure they are failing don't waste money. Stage 1 turbo after that see if you still want more. Since your truck is studded already you don't have that to worry about buy your sct with custom tunes then buy your turbo.

If u buy a turbo buy a large vgt... 65-68mms range. That way you'll have the airflow if u do upgrade injectors. Because if u buy a smaller vgt now and do injectors later... ur gone need to buy a larger turbo later for the injector upgrade. Ain no need in buy-in two t urbos. Maybe someone elserl will chime in with ther opinion.

Not really, if I do it would just be a fourwheeler or two for our deerlease. I was looking on the mtw website and it goes from the stage 1 I think to the hybrid, but ive read somewhere that the hybrid is discontinued.

Ok, I was wrong ha, they replaced the hybrid with the madmax. So has anyone heard anything about the madmax? If im not mistaken, its a tad bigger than the stage 2, and would either of these be compatible with stock injectors and proper tuning?
