Re: Powermax Turbo?

I'll start by saying that I'm somewhat mechanically inclined but by no means am I a diesel tech. I can just tell you what I have on my 2004. Everything performance related on my truck was done by a diesel shop in Wisconsin by the previous owner before I bought it. My 6.0 is basically stock since everything other than the SCT tuner is bolt on stuff. I have an Air Raid Cold air induction kit and a turbo back 4" MBRP exhaust. I have a Garrett Powermax with Wicked wheel II. I know that the powermax produces 30% more air flow (I only know this from a diesel podcast with some guys from Holderdown performance). I also know that to make more power you need a few basic things.... to get more air in and to get more air (exhaust) out. So while in my opinion the powermax will not hurt your factory setup you may want to consider a larger (and less restrictive) exhaust to benefit from it. Just my 2 cents

Re: Powermax Turbo?

Powermax will work fine on a stock motor. You can bolt it up and run it without doing anything else. To get it to perform well and not be laggy, you will want a custom tune though. Let me know if we can help you out with that. We also carry the Powermax if you're interested...
