Re: after market turbo help

A Pmax with a billet single plane compressor wheel is hard to beat. It will be new and you don't need a core. There's other vendors out there that can rebuild yours if that's what you want.

love my stage one. Adrian was great to work with and knew what I was looking to do with the truck as well as my application. Also it doesn't hurt that it is only about 60% the cost of a pmax with upgraded wheel.

Re: after market turbo help

A Pmax with any wheel is easy to beat, go to their website and order a Stage 1 or even Stage 2 and be done with it, that way if you ever plan to go larger you already have enough Turbo for 500 hp.

google mad turbo werks.

Re: after market turbo help

Ok so what I'm getting from you guys is that a power max is not worth the money just go with a MTW turbo stage 2-3 for a few $$$ more

Re: after market turbo help

I personally think the pmax with a billet wheel is a great option. It all depends on exactly what you are looking for. Each turbo will have its pluses and minuses
