How will an vgt-ss turbo and stock injectors work together? Laggy, slow spool up, about the same as stock? Will it be alright until I get injectors? Thanks

I ran a VGT-SS for about a year with stock sicks and factory fuel system with no problems at all. It actually spooled a little quicker. So you will be fine until you get the injectors.

07 stroker, how much performance gain was there with just stock injectors? Do you still have your vgt-ss?

Will this turbo help clean up the left over smoke that I have and reduce my EGTs?

SS is a great turbo for every day use with stock injectors to 190s or 200s. You can tow with it and have no issues. The HO on the other hand is a great turbo for a street/strip truck. As long as you dont tow with it your fine. I loved both my SS and HO but the SS is better for all around use.

Is it true the SS is as loud as an 03 turbo?

The SS is louder than a 03 turbo.

stock sticks will have a hard time spooling the HO. its a little laggy but that turbo makes power. i made 574 on fuel with my 205s from elite. why do you want an ss? are you planning on injectors soon , or is you stocker worn out? the stock turbo does pretty well. guys are getting over 500 out of them with 190s and proper tuning.

I got a real good deal on one, and I plan on injectors down the road.
