Powermax turbo?

How safe would i be running this turbo without studs and a stock tranny? I like the idea of lower egt's and a little more power to put me just above anyone elsewith just tuning like i have now.

So far all i have is FBD 4" turbo strait back
6.5" Pro-Comp lift
Full stereo with a custom made sub box I built
Harley Headlights
Autometer gauges
SCT X3 with IDP tunes
BPD EGR delete and oil cooler
ARP Head studs
6.4L Banjo bolts
18" MT classic lock rims with 35x13.50 cooper STT tires

I'm assuming you are meaning the GT38R. If that's the case, I am running it with just a tune, intake, exhaust. Nothing major done. I bought it in preparation for injectors and other mods, but that being said, it works just fine now. Mine does spool a bit slower, but I also swapped out the 1.0 A/R turbine housing that comes on it for a 1.15 A/R housing. It does have a "unique" sound that is louder than most turbos, but works like a champ.

I would say without studs on a 7.3 and just tunes you are fine. Stock tranny.....I wouldn't trust that with JUST the tuner.
