Turbo Question...

I just bought this truck a couple weeks ago and so far I have gotten new GP, new radiator, batteries, and in the process of a new turbo (went out on monday) and Edge Evolution.
The guy I bought it from said it had a 500 hp tranny, 260-340 cc injectors (having mechanic find out exactly what they are). It has cold air intake with spectre filter and mbrp dual exhaust. My question is, now that you know my setup, what horsepower can I get with a stock turbo? Have a boost guage but the Edge will have all the guages I need.

260-340 cc is a large range but I would say 600+ hp for the 10 seconds before your turbo melts. Something tells me your injectors aren't anywhere near that size. You will have to have them pulled and flow tested to get an idea of what they are.
