turbonetics fixed geometry turbo... thoughts?

So I found this turbonetics turbo the inlet is 58/71 74 .59 A/R. Just wondering if anyone has any input on this turbo. Right now I have a powermax with a mtw single plane wheel. I'm using 175 injectors and have a gogo diesel ported intake. As well as other things here and there. My question is how well will these injectors handle this turbo, right now I can light up the power max quick as hell but I'm lacking top end power, and what would the drivabilty be? I use this truck for everything and just don't want to lose function over form.

The main reason I'm debating this turbo is cause a guy has it for sale not far from me.

I would personally pass on the deal... even if it was free. Your pmax is a 63.5mm turbo and this is a 58mm turbo. That is smaller than stock 2004 turbos and much smaller than your pmax. You will more than likely end up with less power and slower spooling than your current setup. Your 175s are gonna way over fuel the 58mm

Here are a couple links to what I found out
