Powermax going on next week! Slightly excited..

Not a major upgrade but I'm getting a Powermax installed next week. Have a couple questions though.

I'm staying with stock injectors and will be running my SRL+ till I can get a live tune. Shouldn't have any ill effects from this correct? I probably wont be seeing the max potential but my main concern is that I don't hurt anything by not recalibrating for the added airflow.

I'm used to late model GM (gas) vehicles being more finicky about small adjustments. Dont want to run into any lean conditions or anything like that.

Thanks,
Jon

turbo will have some lag untill you get some custom tunes. Some new sticks will light it very nicely.

I ran a new turbo and sticks without changing tunes for a while. Not that giant of a difference IMO.

Why don't you put it on? Changing turbos is not that difficult...
